    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
