Lightbulb Alexey's Reefer 250

Hello !

Starting a new system today with the RedSea Reefer 250.
I really liked my Shallow 30x30x12 but small things that I wanted to fix and couldn't pushed me to breakdown the tank and start all over and make it exactly how I want this time.

At this moment tank is cycling 7 days and waiting for the new light to arrive in about 2-3 weeks from Dave.



Stand: RedSea.
Light: ATI 36" SunPower x4 (6) bulbs + Double NanoBox Retro Kit.
Tank: RedSea Reefer 250.
Sump: RedSea Reefer 250 sump with modified external refugium.
Skimmer: Vertex Omega 130.
Controller: Apex.
Doser: Kore 5th. ( 2 parts ).
Main Pump: Two Gyre 230.
ATO: Kore 5th.
Return pump: Syncra Silent 5.0, Refugium pump Syncra Silent 2.0.
Heater: x2 Cobalt Neo-Therm 100W.
Refugium: 12x12x12 - 7.5 GALLON CUBE TANK.
Refugium Light: H380 Halo II.
Additional surface: 1L of Matrix Media in the refugium.
Sand: CaribSea Dry Aragonite Flamingo Reef Sand 15 lb.

Thanks. A very accurate doser, 5 channels, nice ATO, nothing to complain. I was using Apex DDOS before, very happy that I've switched.
The only one thing the software is little confusing in the beginning, but you'll get used to it.

I am going to do a t-5 led hybrid using the large retrofit kit once I get my new build underway. Right now I am using a Mini Tide on my Fusion 10 and I love it.
