    Hi all,
    New here (3-4 weeks). I'll be posting pics of my new Max 250 (65 gal). I upgraded from a 29 BioCube.
    Here are a few of the tank itself, will upload some close-ups of the fish and coral.
    I added a sump with a fuge in the cabinet, will post pics of that too ::)

    I really do love the rsm 250 in general. I think that redsea hit the nail on the head with this tank. I do have one question though. How does the protein skimmer perform. I know the old on in the smaller max wasn't ery good at all.

    Good question, haven't used the skimmer yet though since the tank is realtively new and am still to turn it on and go through the few weeks of breaking it in. Will do that soon. I haven't seen much info about the 250 skimmer, I know the first 130 had some issues but they corrected them in their 130D and most people were very happy with it, I'm guessing the 250 one should be as good at least ;)
    Will let you know

    Nice setup! Looks like you already have quite a bit of coral.
