    After a year of researching, watching tons of videos and visiting many local aquarium shops I finally decided to get into the Salt Water Aquarium hobby. I ended up going with the Red Sea Reefer 250. I prefer this one over the Red Sea Max e260 mainly because I didn't the black portion on the back that you can see from the side. So far a week into cycling and the first week has been fun watching everything come together. Here's a quick list of the reef so far

    Red Sea Reefer 250 deluxe w/hydro LED
    Approx. 45 pounds of Pukani Rock
    40 pounds of CaribSea Fiji sand
    EcoTech MP40
    Sicce 3.5 return pump
    Reef Octopus 150int protein skimmer
    Tunze 3155 Auto Top Off
    BRS RO/DI system

    Looking forward to adding some clean up crew in a few weeks. I think I will go with a a crew I can customize versus a 99$ and get these type clean up crew. Going to start with a few and see if I need to add more later.

    Would love to know your thoughts or any feedback. I am brand new to salt water aquariums.

    Added clean up crew from LiveAquaria. I built my own crew for the tank. Also added two snowflake Davinchi clownfish. They look amazing in the tank and are super happy. The anemone so far is folded over. That's the only one that is worrying me so far. [​IMG][​IMG]
