just picked up a Red Sea Max C250 that was running with 2 clowns, a firefish, about 15 snails, some Kenya trees, mushrooms, about 20 pounds of live rock totally covered in corraline, chiller, ato system, some sort of dosing thing, a reverse osmosis system from BRS, 2 buckets of salt, and tons of chemicals that I haven't gone through yet. The lady wanted me to keep the sandbed, but when we tried to lift it there was no way! It was black anyway which I'm not fond of. Good thing the tank and stand isn't any bigger cause it just fit in my jeep!! I've since put the livestock in my current tank which is doing fine. Have to clean everything and figure out how it all goes back together!! (Yikes) I got everything for $500(and a 2.5 hour ride). I think it was a good deal with all the extras. They said the tank is acrylic but it's hard to tell. I'm excited about setting it up! I was thinking of raising the stand up a bit, but then I'll need a ladder for maintenance!
Anyone have a Red Sea Max? Is the chiller really necessary?
