    Jake's Reefer 250

    Well, I've paid my deposit to the reef gods and they provided much gear. This thread will chronicle my first tank in 12 years. Things have come a long way since then! Current FTS (leak test): I picked up a Red Sea Reefer 250 on eBay for $500. I had to drive a couple hours to pick it up, but no biggie. It's kiddo approved! Both of my kids are super excited to start a tank after a recent trip to Mote Marine over Spring Break. All the stuff is there. The plumbing is in good shape, and everything is super clean. The cabinet has some screw holes, but no biggie. This thing is a beast compared to any tank I've had. My last reef tank was a 20L with no sump. I've had freshwater aquariums in the past, but nothing over 30 gallons. I've also never had a rimless aquarium. It was one of the must-haves when I was obsessing over which tank to buy. The stand tore down easily for transport, and somehow I squeezed everything into my Subaru Impreza! It's going to be awhile before I actually get saltwater, rock, and sand in it, but there's still plenty to do in the meantime.

    I qt and use copper,they stay in qt for 4 weeks minimum.i use a 15 gallon tank with a heater sponge filter and a very small power filter with out carbon for movement to keep things stirred up I change 5 gallons every 3 to 4 days this has worked well for me.i replace any copper i have removed with water change

    I bought a pile of gear. Unfortunately, I didn't know about the kickbacks from Marine Depot to Buckeye Reef when I placed my orders. I'll definitely use the link from now on though! I picked up 3 Noopsyche K7 Pro II LED fixtures off of R2R. I had just read a well-written and thorough review on R2R about them when they popped up. Just so happens it was @crimsonvice who wrote it! Thanks for being so thorough! I was lucky enough to snag them for $325 shipped. I bought the arms for them from The Coral Reef TN for $36/pc. https://www.ebay.com/usr/thecoralreeftn. Other gear: - Reef Octopus Varios 6 (probably too much pump, but I'm making a manifold) - Reef Octopus Classic 150-INT - (2x) VorTech MP10 - Marine Depot KleanWater 4-Stage Economy RO/DI System - 100 GPD - HMO 200 Watt Titanium Heater with Digital Controller - Finnex - Tunze Osmolator Universal 3155 ATO - AquaMaxx Fluidized GFO and Carbon Filter Media Reactor - XS - Titanium Ground Probe I bought a Seneye that I'll probably return. I told myself I didn't need an Apex, but then I talked myself into it. So I'll probably send the Seneye back. So now I have: - Seneye Reef Monitor - API Saltwater Liquid Master Test Kit - API Reef Master Test Kit - Neptune Systems APEX Wi-Fi Controller System - Neptune Systems Magnetic Probe Rack (MPR) - Neptune Systems DOS (for auto water change)

    For sure! I'm thinking we get with them and schedule a group meet or something. Maybe in a month or two, to give them some time to settle in.

    not trying to get off topic but installing a gate valve on your drain would help

    probably the shadow overflow. decent reviews, very low profile. A little expensive but seems pretty solid. I prefer the in tank overflows that are drilled on the bottom but thats just my preference. seems like you cant go wrong with the fiji cube overflow as well. aesthetics are good as well

    Learning as I go......

    24-hours post-split. The other is hiding and I can only see the foot, and the occasional tentacles reaching out, so I have no idea how it is doing....... Edit: Other half is starting to come out of hiding....

    Jake's Reefer 250

    Dry fit the plumbing for the manifold which will serve the Aquamax reactor and the ATO which I will be turning into a mini-refugium. I might stub out one more valve for a future addition. I would love to get a bigger sump with a proper refugium, but this will have to do for now. Hard-plumbing the return pump was way more of a pain than expected. I'll be changing the last few inches out for a flexible tube.

    Wwc coral club

    Last month i joined wwc coral club.its a subscription monthly program where you get two levels to choose from The silver and gold,i am doing the silver one.i get 5 different frags a month plus some little goodies.anywhere from a t shirt last month to a wwc cooler this month along with stickers can coolers etc.. You get to pick from different types like lps,sps,softies,zoes,monti,chalice,acros..the gold pack you get the higher end acros and sps. I did the silver to try it out a few months and see how the corals do as i set up my calcium reactor They also keep track what you have been sent as long as you are in the program so you don't get doubles. I hope to grow them out and join the trade forward program in the club..i think you all have great ideas and a great club i am glad to have joined

    Quarantine. Do you? and why or why not

    No fish goes in my system without full QT. I won’t risk my investment of fish already I’m my display. It’s a pain for sure but one fish with velvet will wipe out your whole tank. I also qt my corals and inverts, same reason plus the chance of nuisance algae. I have bubble algae in my old display thanks to not doing so.

    curious if anyone knows

    well....i guess the answer is no lol. i looked it up and algae spores are 25-100x smaller than bacteria. ranging from .004 microns to .10. oops read it wrong that is for viruses lol. i just read that alot of algae can be filtered out by 10 micron filtration

    curious if anyone knows

    I heard the same about the algae. I can’t figure out how it’s going to be bad. Farmers haven’t been able to get into the fields because it’s too wet, so where is all the phosphate coming from. Oh wait the city of Toledo’s sewage and all the runoff from the landfills by the lake!!! But I’m on city of Toledo water system, so I’m curious as to the RODI thing as well. The new filtration system that has been installed for Toledo and the fact they will be watching better should help some.

    That’s my thought exactly. Lol. If they do get eaten the eels better enjoy them and I’ll take it as lesson learned. They have wiped out most of my coraline and between them and my 2 urchins my glass and liverock have never been cleaner. I do miss having the purple on my rocks though.
