    Thanks Evolutionz, that BubbleMagus Skimmer looks like it was made for that little corner!  But does it get in the way of your ATO reservoir?

    Edit I noted that you took it out later.  Any reviews on it?

    That BM Z6 skimmer just kept overflowing for weeks till i gave up and sold it away. I have used a Deltec SC1350 and BM Curve 5 for this tank and couldn't get much skimmate out it till i changed to a Skimz DC SN123.

    Hi All,

    I am hoping to set up a Red Sea Reefer 200XL in the near future.  I discovered that the set ups don't include the return pump and the skimmer are not included.  Looking for advice on the equipment I can consider based on the following criteria for a budget conscious new reefer.

    Return Pump - Red Sea website suggested a 2000L per hour pump.  I would like something that is quiet and performs well. 

    Low budget: Jebao DCP-4000

    High Budget: Vectra S2

    Skimmer - would like to get one with a smaller footprint that won't take up too much space in the sump as I hope to have a refugium in the sump as well.  Should be quiet.  Not sure what else to look out for in a skimmer.  

    Low budget: Bubble Magus Curve 5 or a 2nd hand Skimz SN123/SM121

    High Budget: Nyos 120

    Lighting - I would probably go with the Reef LEDs for this.  I like the idea that the stand can be lifted up to access the tank.  Any other lights that can do that and also can be programmed?

    Low budget: Noopsyche K7 Pro II LED (2 units if going full SPS)

    High Budget: Ecotech Radion XR15 G5 (XR30 G5 if going full SPS)

    Flow generation - looking for recommendations on DC wave makers that would be suitable for such this size set up so that I can vary the flow.

    Low budget: 2x Jebao SLW-10/SLW-20

    High Budget: 2x Ecotech MP10 or 2x AI Nero 3

    Chiller - I might get one at a later time due to feedback that I need one for corals.  I do intend to just keep softies since I hear they are more forgiving.  I would like to get one with a small footprint.

    Low budget: 2nd hand Arctica 1/10hp or Teco TK500

    High Budget: Brand new Arctica 1/10hp or Teco TK500

    Any other inputs invited.  Forgive the noobish questions.

    This is just my personal opinion and also how much you willing to spend on the tank. 

    I have a similar tank Reefer 170 and i use many of the mentioned equipment above (mainly the low budget one), the only one i do not recommand getting the cheaper brand is chiller, i have been through most of the brands out there and honestly i would rather buy a old 2nd hand arctica or Teco (new TK series only) than a brand new Haliea. 

    Here is my tank thread for your reference.. do note that whatever i say is not the only ones you should consider but just what i would use.


  4. As usual, top left to bottom right.


    Top left - Aussie deep blue tenuis 1" x 3 branches $20


    Top right - tri-color staghorn (green body, blue stems and purple tip) 1.5" multi-branch $20


    Bottom left - 3 huge polyps rainbow infusion zoas (a couple baby polyps popping out) $20


    Bottom middle - 5 polyps blue orgasm zoas $20


    Bottom right - 2 polyps armour of God (1 baby polyp) $20


    Take all for only $90 and FOC a rasta zoas frag!

    Hi ALL, Im new here. Have zero experience on marine/reef tank. But I have been keeping a planted fresh water aquarium for about 10 years. I want get into the marine/reef tank hobby and start with either a 600mm or 900mm tank. Since the start up cost of this hobby comes with a hefty price tag, would you know if there are marine tank shops that offers 0% installment plan?

    Welcome! I believe some LFS do offer that, i do know Madpetz has 0% installment plan on their red sea tanks.

    U can’t eradicate vertimids imo, u can keep them under control tho 

    I beg to differ, i had a vertimid out break and after adding 10 bumblebee snails, and after crushing as many as i can find, i have yet to find a new one for a few months!

    Are those K7 led that you are using ? Nothing much change, except corals are nowsaday more expensive haha..

    Yup those are Noopsyche K7 Pro II LEDs, i think they are the best valued for money fixture in the market right now. I do not have the Hydra 26s to compare to, but they do look identical spectrum wise. 

    Fishes are also getting more expensive too!
