I am getting my lid from a local acrylic guy, not artfully acrylic (although perhaps I should have gone with them).

I do have a build thread, still in the process of bringing it up to date.

There is one fish that you’ll see in the video that I keep in my tank... do you know which one?

A little photo dump of new and newish fishies.
First this little beauty - yellow tailed tamarin wrasse called Panda



I got her about a month ago. Spent first week hiding in the sand. When he came out, he spent all of his time picking pods off of rocks - showed no interest in prepared food. By the third week, he took to masstick applied to rock crevices and took down some preserved arcti pods. This week he is finally eating frozen mysis. I think she’ll fit in well.

Here is the new clown - valentine


The yellow tang - lululemon

Lululemon and panda are good friends, they like to cruise the tank together

Nice pictures, taken with your iphone x?
Sorry about your ice fire, i plan to get one soon.
Do you have any ideas why he die? Was he acclimated to your lights? I heard that radions can kill acros not accustomed to led.
Thanks

Reefer 250 build

Thanks @Sam2832 - pics taken with Nikon dslr and macro lenses

Not really sure why the ice fire died. It wasn’t in a great shape when I bought it - original owner had an all swing that killed the main colony but he saved a few tips which he sold as frags. In hind sight, I probably shouldn’t have purchased a frag from a colony that recently rtn’ed - poor judgement

I had placed it in a lower light spot to help acclimate but it stn’ed

Looks really nice! I notice most of the sand is missing. Where are the wrasses hiding now?

There is sand in the back.. about 2 “ behind most of the rock work... that’s where the wrasses sleep.

22 month update:
Now both my Moyer leopard wrasse and the yellow tail Tamarin Wrasse are happy coexisting, thanks to the acclimation box.
Also added a breakout box for the apex to prevent skimmer from overflowing.

Hope all is stabilising now.

Hi all. I made a little par map of my Redsea reefer 250 under 60 to 100% power using ecotech gen3 radion xr15s with the new diffuser. May be of use to you if you have a similar sized tank with similar lights
I have 3 lights on the my tank and I am a running a slightly modified sps ab+ program
