It’s looking very nice and great pictures!
You could look at someone like Charterhouse Aquatics, who offer interest free on over 300 quid spent? Thereby paying it off bit by bit instead of saving up for one lump sum?Ok so I got the new red sea reef led 90 and man what a difference if colour. Now I am strongly contemplating removing the long Chinese led i have and using this unit in the center even if my tank requires two. Its just such a massive change I just dnt know what to do its gnna be about 5 months till I can afford a second unit arrggg any advice?
Hey Pancho, thanks for the welcome back. Was a bit overwhelmed with few things happening IRL that I completely forgot about updating my thread, been reading up on all the others and I am very sorry to hear about your CBB that truly sux.Good to read you again, the torch looks awesome.
Why don’t you get one custom build to the exact size and specification you need.Ok so after a year of having this second hand tank my wife now decides to pester me saying its to bulky. I have to agree with her as its already huge plus the 15cm gap it requires to be from the wall adds to that. So now here comes the beginning of my head ache which I need advice for, I have looked at possibly getting the reefer xl 425 which is longer length wise but narrower in depth and smaller in height plus it would be put right up against the wall saving more space.
Now problem number one is, the plumbing would have to be redone to be able to fit the chiller I currently have im my current system. Second problem would be going through the whole cycle again now that my tank is super stable.....
Problem three is having to sell all my corals/rock/fish and tank before getting the new one...
should i replace my max 400 for the reefer xl 425 or do you folks think another option would be better ?
All you need to do is open the rear valve fully, cut the downpipe in the cabinet and insert a gate valve, its relatively simple.Thats true could always go with changing the valve that some how skipped my mind. Ill have a look at custom built one to prob is I think its way more expensive locally than a prebuilt one.

I am having similar thoughts. Do I replace my S-650 with a Penninsular Red Sea tank. She Who Casts No Shadow wants the tank to be somewhere else in the Living Room. Pros and cons:-
I would get newer lights. Replacing the HD 26's with ReefLED 90's.
I could plumb my Chiller to vent directly outside as the new location is against an external wall. That will cost though.
I get a newer tank. The current S-650 is four years old in December.
Better Sump layout.
The S-650 has a fantastic aluminium frame. The others don't.
Wavemakers either inside the tank, or stuck on the outside.
No lighting assembly looks as good as the one on the S-650.
I like the small pelmet around the top of the S Series tanks. In the open top reefers etc you have to continuously clean the glass around there.
Smaller ATO capacity.
The S Series is the Red Sea flagship range. Anything else can be considered as a downgrade?
I would like a tank with more volume but the largest Red Sea Pen tank is 650l.
Should I go with a custom build? If I do this change then I would want the tank to be a minimum of 750l
Exciting news As Shaun has said, just remember the seven "P's". Proper Planning & Preparation Prevent Piss Poor Performance !So its happened i put the tank for sale and within 4hrs it was sold, such a sad day to be getting rid of my tank. But hey now ill be for the first time ever getting a brand spanking new tank fresh from the store woho. So ive decided what I will be getting an here is the list tell me what you folks think.
