    Hi everyone! I’m pretty new to the reefing community and I’m on the market to upgrade from my 32 gal bio cube to a full on Red Sea Max S 500!! I’ve been reefing for about 6 months now, never lost a fish or coral and don’t plan to ever! (I know sometimes it’s just inevitable) but my deep love for the ocean is what brought my attention to reefing and I don’t think I’ll ever stop! Does anybody within 500-600 miles of South Carolina have a used S-500 for sale??

    That’ll be a sizable upgrade for sure! Go with the one that has the plywood stand vs mdf. Waterbox tanks are nice too. Hopefully you can find on used......although I’m a fan of buying new

    What is mdf?? The S series actually has an aluminum frame with whatever wood they used to cover the metal frame!
