All-in-one vs. custom setup; reef
I’m in the early planning stages of my first reef tank after having kept
freshwater community followed by an African cichlid tank successfully.
currently considering the Red Sea Max 250 system
<A very nice unit>
for this attempt as I
don’t have experience with and am a little hesitant to jump into a sump
system. I’m wondering if you would agree with this approach or if you
I’ll get better experience/results by building a sump system
<Either approach will be fine>
One hang-up on the all-in-one is that I would like to
incorporate a refugium at some point and I’m not sure I can do that with
the Red Sea Max without significantly modifying the system.
<Not that much of a modification really... can be run externally;
elsewhere; w/o much trouble>
As always, your
help is deeply appreciated.
