    Josh and Tiffany's RSR 250

    Earlier this year, my wife and I were talking about upgrading our IM Nuvo 20 to a larger display tank. We thought we'd go for an IM Nuvo 40 or something similar...then @Jonathan Chia decided to break down his tank and I went, "Huh, that seems like a good idea." So now we have a Red Sea Reefer...

    Using a Kessil A150 as a fuge light?

    Setting up my first refugium pretty soon and learning what I can about it. Would there be any issues with using a Kessil A150 as a refugium light, given there's one on hand?

    Swapping out sump on RSR 250

    So I'll be putting a larger sump in on an RSR 250 and I'm curious whether anyone here has done that before. Specifically, I'm curious about how you converted from the metric to standard/your final setup. Thanks!

    Neptune Apex Classic issue - two different display units not displaying?

    So I'm trying to get an Apex Classic set up. Power bar and brain are fine/status lights are green. When I plug the display unit in, however, nothing happens (aside from the LCD getting half a shade darker). This happens whether I plug it into the aquabus on the brain or the EB8, regardless of...

    Stocking ideas for a RSR 250?

    So after some consideration/redecoration ideas, we'll be upgrading to a Red Sea Reefer 250. I'm familiar with stocking options for sub-30 gallon tanks, as well as 4 foot+ tanks, but I'm now trying to research options that'd do well in a 36 x 21 x 20 footprint. Anybody have any suggestions...

    Metric (expletive deleted) of coral

    We're helping break down a tank today that has a significant amount of coral. Looking for homes for a lot of this, preferably pickup today, in either SJ or SF. Edit: apologies to everyone. This took longer than expected and we did not have reception there. If you're interested in corals in SF...

    Skimmer silencer making noise?

    Took my skimmer out today to clean it and I'm confused at the noise it's making: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nZTX8iDQYwmGMMwgWCloL1QfhDDvLwfK/view?usp=drivesdk Didnt make that noise before and doesn't make that noise when the intake cylinder is removed, or when I cover the intake with one...

    Pump randomly losing efficiency?

    I've had this problem persist across two return pumps and it's making me tear my hair out trying to figure it out. At completely random intervals (ranging from a day or so to several weeks), my return pump (Varios S2) will lose efficiency and flood my sump. When this happens, water level in the...

    GHL KH Director vs KH Guardian

    I'm getting sick of dosing tanks by hand, so I'm starting to look into alkalinity automation. I think I've settled more or less on the KH Director or the KH Guardian, but trying to figure out the major differences between them. Cost-wise, I think the two are roughly equivalent for me since I...

    Reefer-owned restaurants in the bay?

    I know @Danhsj has Bowl of Pho in Sunnyvale, and of course @Tim Obert has the awesome Seven Stills, but I'm curious what other reefer-owned restaurants/establishments there are in the bay. Since stuff is slowly getting back to normal, wife and I are looking at new places to try out and visit...
