    There seem to be a number of RSM out there and thought that it would be useful to have a list of all those forum members who have them in case of an emergency etc ..

    Would be interesting to look at all the appropriate threads to see different modifications, additions, scaping and stocking as we all seem to run our tanks slightly differently.

    Please could you post a FTS of your RSM 250 if you have one :thumbup:

    Awesome idea! Will do.

    Maybe also add a short write up of what you added or removed from your rsm to make it easier to compare?

    @Tokalosh

    Can you repost the picture of the back chambers so we can all reference the same areas? I saw you posted it on another forum.

    Nice pics @Tokalosh! This is the sort of info I was looking for :thumbup::thumbup:
    Would also like photo of the front thought ;)

    My FTS:

    I have simply added Chemi Pure Elite (2 bags) and Purigen into the second chamber (after removing the bio balls). Also added a chiller and am trying to choose a doser now. The canister is an interesting alternative!

    Currently removed large black sponge to the left.

    Added ATO, Biocubes and chiller.

    Will post FTS but I only have one yellow legged hermit. Taking it slow. Params have been zero amm and zero nitrite for two weeks. Nitrate has come down to 5.
