      Stpatrick's Red Sea Reffers 425xl build

      I am hopeless. This is like my 4th build thread now. But here we go again. This build is my end all be all. Right! But I am gearing this one up to be ULM & ULN. As always. This will be SPS dominate. I have been reading a ton on the triton method and I thinks its worth giving a go. It makes total sense to me. This build has also been inspired by @SuncrestReef & @Broadfield on r2r. I love the automation of these builds. So stay tuned. Below is my ever evolving build sheet. I look forward to any help and/or criticism along the way.

      Aquarium
      - Red Sea Reefer XL 425 with white cabinet


      Flow
      - 3170 GPH DE Echo pump
      - Manifold with gate valves to supply the 2 reactors plus one for expansion
      - Replace Red Sea return nozzle with dual nozzles
      - 2 Neptune Systems WAV pumps. To start.


      Filtration – Triton Method
      - Stock Red Sea filter socks for now
      - 2 MBR157 Macroalgae Reactors Or fuge? TBD
      - Skimmer TBD
      - Two AquaMaxx Fluidized GFO & Carbon media reactors
      - Possibly a 55 gallon barrel with a DSB. Similar to my ls build


      Lighting
      - TBD - LED/T5 - ???


      Heating
      - TBD


      Controller
      - Neptune EB832
      - Standard Apex probes in skimmer chamber
      - Neptune FMM units

      - Neptune low monitor on return pipe
      - Neptune flow monitor on each media reactor
      - Neptune Leak detection probe in sump cabinet

      - Neptune DOS x 4 for dosing - Triton
      - Neptune ATK
      - Neptune AFS
      - Neptune WXM

      Make some progress. My kiddos had their girlfriends over so it gave me plenty of opportunity to get the stand set up. Not as complicated as I thought it was going to be. Typical IKEA type fasteners. Very very stable and sturdy. Pretty impressed with the red sea set up thus far.

      Thank you. This one I think is going to be interesting as well. Not only am I striving foryou ULN but I am striving Giving ULM a go via the triton method.

      So now all I need to do is get the tank over here and up onto its final resting place. I also have some pretty cool things planned for the sump. Make sure you guys provide critique & feedback.

      Lots going on. Lots of new things came in. The ideas are flowing. My plan is to keep this as simple and clean as possible. Utilizing a manifold to power two reactors. I plan on doing custom in cabinet and sump lighting. I donít want to see any wires so still trying to sort that. Itís definitely a work in progress. The right side will be where all the electronics and controls will reside. Thatís all still in the planning stage. But I believe I have the sump area all planned out. In my mind anyway.

      Here is the protein skimmer that I will be running on this tank for now. I think itís a little bit overkill but it was free. Itís a aquamaxx cones Q3. Itís Supposed to work on tanks up to 420 gallons.

      Nice setup as always. I've been debating getting one of the XXL750 Red Sea tanks for a while now.

      Beast of a skimmer. Unbelievable you picked that up for free!

      So I decide to get a little creative with the sump. My plan is to do LEDs on all three sides. I found LEDs on Amazon. You can set them to pretty much whatever color you want. More on that later. Here are some before and after shots.
