Going from the top of the Reefer system down to the bottom, the first thing you will notice is the crystal clear glass and elegant beveled edges. The second thing you may or may not notice is the slim overflow that houses all the drain and return plumbing to keep the water a constant level within the display tank and surface skimming while being super quiet and taking up a very small amount of real estate inside of the tank. The return nozzle is fully adjustable for to direct the flow where you need it, and the dual drain system keeps overflows from happening like a single drain design may encounter. The dual drain design has one main drain that includes a diaphragm valve for easy tuning and adjustments. The other drain is completely open to flow directly down into the sump in the event that the main drain gets clogged. If plumbing is one of the reasons why you have never wanted to install a tank with a sump don’t worry as Red Sea has done all the planning for you and there is no gluing needed to assemble and seal all the plumbing.
The sump includes a filter sock holder and sock to keep large pieces of debris and detritus from clogging pumps and other pieces of equipment. The water can then flow from the filter sock into the skimmer compartment where the water will keep a steady level to aid in the best performance in your choice of skimmer or any other filtration components that you choose to include can be placed there. The water will then flow through the final bubble trap and into the final chamber where the return pump (not included) can be placed to pump water back through the Reefer tanks return plumbing.
Integrated Top Off
When water starts to evaporate all Reefer systems include an integrated top off system and reservoir that can hold a few days worth of top off water to keep the water level, salinity and flow rates consistent throughout the tank.

No pump?? By Nemo68 on 4/26/2017Nemo68 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI'd think for the price of this set up, that you could at least include a return pump...and a clear top for evaporation..
Proprietary Filter Socks By Josh E on 4/30/2016Josh E would recommend this product to a friendThis is a very high quality system. I chose the white system, which gives this a very stunningly unique look. My only gripe is that this system uses proprietary filter socks that cost $10 each, as of the time of this review. This wouldn't be so bad if they didn't clog so quickly. Luckily, Red Sea offers a mesh filter sock, which suits my needs fine.
Great product By Carlos V on 1/21/2016Carlos V would recommend this product to a friendThis tank is definitely top class for its price. Everything arrived in perfect condition and is doing well. Instructions are slightly vague as it is just diagrams but it is very easy to setup. If you have the extra cash, or just want an top quality all in one tank, this is a must.

Ask a question
Also I noticed there is no lighting for this aquarium, I am planning a nano reef with SPS, is there a suggested LED lamp that could be attached to the back of the aquarium? Thanks
For shipping and purchasing you will need to contact Red Sea directly for orders out of mexico or international orders. A great light for this would be the AI prime or AI hydra 26. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Skimz SN123 would be a great fit if the tank is going to have a heavier bio-load. I have included a link below.
