Red Sea Reefer tanks are going to be the best foundation for any reefer that wants custom filtration while having an elegant and professional looking reef aquarium with an included sump, stand, and plumbing.
If you have a personal preference for the skimmer you want to run, lighting system, return pump, media reactors, or any other additional hardware the Reefer aquarium system is for you. With ultra-clear rimless, beveled glass and a marine spec cabinet that follows the contour of the tank down to the floor. All of the reefer systems include a proportionate sump, all the necessary plumbing, integrated auto top off system, and reservoir.
Going from the top of the Reefer XXL 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 returns 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.
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.

Amazing tank... small issues. By Rob on 9/25/2018Rob would recommend this product to a friendThis is an amazing tank the glass is about as clear and well put together as you can get. The stand is a bit like ikea but with better materials. Not hard to build but takes a hour or so. Be aware this think is gigantic it’s 800lbs shopped It comes on a large pallet so have some guys ready to help!
The plumbing is very easy to set up the sump is great plenty of room and well built. Fits a full size vertex and a varios 8 as well as a brs duel media reactor with room for a moderate Refugium. Overall quality and appearance is spot on.
Now for the nitpicking. First the return nozzle is a design flaw for this size tank a decent return pump will shoot a laser of water out that hits the front glass and either shoots water over the edge or pushes all sand front the front of the tank. You can get aftermarket lock line that helps but that’s an additional 60 bucks. Instructions are a little weak but you can figure it out. Also 1 door hinge came damaged.
Overall very happy with this thing it’s a true showpiece.
Great Tank By Jeffrey on 4/3/2018Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friendI've had this tank up and running for over a week and have to say it's just about perfect! Plumbing had no leaks, and delivery was seamless. I literally had the tank in 1 week after placing my order at BRS, not the 2-3 that was estimated. The only complaint is the sump design. I don't like the integrated ATO and have zero trust in it. I also think the skimmer chamber is rather small if you choose to expand the refugium side, but these are minor concerns. The stand on the other hand is premium quality and worth the extra $$$. Red Sea customer service is also very good. Very Highly Recommended!
