    My RedSea Reefer 350

    Afternoon,

    Got a RedSea Reefer 350 yesterday. Some minor scratches, no chips or any major damage. Paid £400 for it. Bargain if you ask me.

    So, today’s project was to do the following:
    1. Get the tank out of the van. (heavy)
    2. Get the sump out of the van. Leave the cabinet in the van for now. (deceptively heavy)
    3. Deep clean the tank, dry & polish it. (All looks good, few minor scratches)
    4. Empty the sump of all of its many filters & tropical water. (waaaay to many filter bits for my likings)
    5. Power hose the sump (horrendous state). dry and polish it. (rinse)
    6. Fill the tank with tap water to make sure it’s watertight. (it’s watertight)
    7. Clean & check all electrical workings work. (everything works)
    8. Look at the strip LED Fluval light in dismay.
    9. Take apart return flow pipe work. (A full colony of slugs & snails!!!)
    10. Clean & make sure ‘o-rings‘ on pipework are not decayed. (All look good to me)
    11. Clean all pipework. (Completed)
    12. Order RO 4 stage unit. (Coming on Tuesday)

    Today has been a good day.

    On the ‘to-do’ list isnot in priority order)
    1. RedSea 90 lights
    2. 2 x wavemakers
    3. Skimmer
    4. Fill it with sand
    5. Clean cabinet and put it in place.
    6. Get live rock.
    7. Get some water in there
    8. Get filters for sump
    9. Order the plastic bits to hold the filter socks. They were missing

    I’ll post some pictures shortly.

    Nice work Liam

    Sounds like you got yourself a great Rimless marine tank there, 375 litres and 70 litre sump...... Can't wait to see this all setup and running, well done.

    Spare parts for the reefer 350 https://charterhouse-aquatics.com/sh...pare-parts/350 don't know if you could find cheaper than these ...but it's a start

    Quick update:
    Cabinet cleaned and polished.
    Ordered plastic filter cup holders.
    Ordered filters and lots of them.
    Sand washed and in the tank.
    Bought the rock and ’aquascaped’ it. Left a gap in the middle for my rock out of my nano tank.
    RO unit is here and producing perfect 0.00 water.

    Still to-do:
    Lights
    Skimmer
    Wavemakers
    Salt (recommendations welcome)
    WATER!

    I will get some pictures up tonight from the very start up to right now

    Found a little leak from one of the pipes. Changed the O Ring (R-20) on it so hopefully that’ll be that sorted!
