    So I am starting up a journal to share everything that I can about my Red Sea Reefer 250 tank.

    I have lots to learn still and lots to improve on. This forum and a lot of other resources have helped me with the start up and tuning of things.

    Red Sea Reefer 250 (54 gallons)
    2 Radions G4 XR15
    2 mp40s
    Reef Octopus skimmer 150
    Reef Octopus DC return pump
    Apex WIFI
    2 Neptune DOS
    2 Neptune DDR containers
    Neptune feeder
    Avast MR16 algae reactor

    Agree with Mark - in person your tank looks fantastic, scrupulously clean and vivid!

    Over the past few months my alk hasn’t been stable. I was manually dosing and will skipped days. I finally got my DOS running a few weeks ago and staring to see some improvement on my sps.

    Very nice. Looks like you don't have room for that elegance. :)

    Looks like you still got some good cheato growth in that reactor. You ever have problems with it melting?

    It grows like crazy. Not melting yet. I have to admit that cleaning this thing sucks
