Hi Bros and Sis,

NEW-biee here on Marine Tank. It has been a couple of months since I started to have interest on Marine tanks. Looking at pictures, following threads and finally made up my mind to setup one. After visiting AQUARAMA 2015, it infuriated my longing to have like and so I started buying the necessary equipments. It has been a past few days that I ordered my tank, (long weekend) finally it will be delivered tomorrow. :cheers:

I know that I could be guided by experienced reefers out there. I admire the patience and efforts to the marine tank hobbyists. And I hope I could be like one someday.

And so my journey starts. Below, my is my setup. Feel free to comment. It will be fully appreciated.

Cheers REEFERS! :thumbsup:

Thanks guys. :)

Those floating things really bothers me. I hope it's only substrate particles.

Will do paramters in a while.

I had also put my wm higher and on intermittent low blow mode, as well as my return pum on its lowest return. With regards to the rocks, I purposely ordered extra for cycling and when finish i could put some in the sump. I am also using sock and running my skimmer with clear bubbles so far. I will buy some more micro filter later.

Will update soon.

TGIF. :)

Looks good. Looking forward to future updates.

I see you are using the 100 micron filter sock (red ring). These are great for clearing up the water fast but can clog quite quickly when livestock is added.

A 200 micron (blue ring) is also available which could 'last' a couple of days longer.

Those nylon type from Madpetz quite gd quality. Come with inner filter wool bag. Can last abt 1 wk without washing. If u dun want to wash ur filter sock so often. Juz get a lot of those inner filter wool bag. Throw away after every wk use. The outer nylon sock can Juz wash once a mth depending on how dirty it is.

      Hi, thank you for taking the time to read through. 
      Whats the Atlantis, Atlantis is what i named my Red Sea Reefer 350. Why name it Atlantis ? Atlantis has always fascinated me. And The Red Sea Reefer being my current dream tank build, the only thing i could think of naming is was The Atlantis. 
      I bought my Reefer 350 second hand from a fellow reefer. The tank was only used for a few months, 5 months to be exact. Well the tank was collected today. And i did the delivery myself. So i guess ill start this thread by writing my experience on how the delivery was done, and what you guys could learn from my mistakes. 
      My friend and i, yes 2 people. We went down to collect the tank, in my van.  Lesson no 1, have more help. Despite the tank weighing 64kg, we had issues carrying it. issues faced was lifting the tank up higher due to the piping, instead of sliding it off the cabinet. Second issue faced was loading it into the van. It was an issue because again of the piping we could not slide it in and had to carefully place it.  Now my van isnt that big. Its just enough to fit a 4 ft tank.  Second issue faced, i decided i did not want to dismantle the cabinet and that we just put it in the van standing. Well it did fit, but due to the size of my van, it was just nice about 5-6 cm away from the door closing in. And the sump tank was just kissing the cabinet. 
      In my opinion, get more people to help. Also have some boxes or cloths to protect the tanks, because when i was driving, there were instances i had to brake hard, and in one of those breaks the sump slide forward and hit the tank. Luckily nothing happened, we stopped over at the patrol pump, got everything placed properly again and put cardboards between them just incase 
      Once the tank was home, it was a breeze to set up. Firstly the previous reefer had already set up the overflow pipes for me. All i had to do was fix the drainage, emergency drainage and return. 
      Now the tank sits, while its Rocks, salts, sands and biomedia come. Also going to do a leak test before filling it up with salt water.
