Marine tank

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Toying with the idea of getting a small marine tank.

Looking at the Red Sea 130D. Does anyone have any experience with these or can recommend another 150 ish litre tank. Would need a small chiller I'm guessing too

Any advice appreciated.

Two of our guys use red sea all in one systems,one of them is the one you are looking at and from what i am told its all good.

The last one of the two red sea tanks was a purchase from pet city of a Red Sea Max S-650,he is very happy with it.

For those that do not want to make much in the way of their own tank,lighting or bio filter,the red sea are are a well made mechanicle filtered all in one aquarium and yes it is a waste of time to efffectively try to keep a marine aquarium at a high level and have it flourish with out a chiller.

Just be aware that with any bio filter of this style,they have weak to quite bad pre filtering,whether it be by a sock or sponge and will enable the filter media to become blocked over time.

If you are aware and put the work in this is not much if any issue.

Before you take the plunge on the redsea130......

I'd say hold off for a few days and keep an eye on

The Age Of Aquariums - Browns Plains, Australia - Pet Service | Facebook

AOA has awesome approx 100L setups coming in

Aquatic Style Nano Marine

no pictures of a black one to show you

as someone, ahem, sold the sole display model.

but heres some I borrowed



But they are stunning, easy to work with and capable.

Definitely a viable option

and a setup I felt like hugging everytime I walked past it.

Pics aren't displaying on iPad. What brand / model is that?

Another one I was looking at was the aqua el reef max

Aquatic Style Nano Marine

you really have to see one, to appreciate just how pretty they are.

I know pretty is not usually the most important attribute of a dry marine system

but dam, it certainly doesnt hurt!
