I picked up a RSM250 for a great deal, so i thought lets give these AIO tanks a go.
I collected it and decided it needed a make over. Removed the lights, added 2 x Gen 1 Radions, 2 x vortech MP40's, drilled and added a sump for a large skimmer and orce bio-cubes.

I converted the back chambers to a refugium and thats it.

The sump is a simple single chamber with a Marine sources DHO-900C skimmer, Orca biocubes which is a bomb container 500ml normal cubes, 250ml titanium cubes and 100ml Phosphaguard cubes.

keep it simple and i dont worry about a thing.
I am dosing Orca Kalk and so far thats all i need.

Livestock:
Various Softies and LPS
1 Clam
1 Halloween Hermit
4 turbo snails
4 Banggai Cardinals
1 Blue dot Goby
1 Pink bar Goby
1 Yellow Tang
1 Mandarin
1 Copperband Butterfly
1 Coral Goby
1 Bicolor Blenny
1 Sixline wrasse
1 Possum Wrasse
1 Blue star leopard wrasse
1 cleaner wrasse

Hey @dallasg, please post pics of where you drilled and how you did your plumbing down to your sump?

I've got a RSM250 so wanting to do the same.

Thanks.
