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.

Dear Red Sea Reefer,
Red Sea is working around the clock to continuously develop and improve our products, and we’re happy to announce the latest round of improvements to most of our REEFER™ models.
While you won’t notice any changes to the overall external appearance of our REEFER™ tanks, you’ll find some significant improvements within the system itself.
Refugium-ready sumps. Downflow valve now positioned at the front of the cabinet. Adjustable height skimmer chamber. Increased volume for RO reservoir. New filter cup, supplied in addition to a micron filter bag (both items also available as accessories for all REEFER models). Marine Spec plywood cabinet with leveling feet for models XL425 and XL525 (previously available only for the XXL & Peninsula series). The REEFER™ 170 model remains unchanged due to cabinet space limitations.
