Why choose a Red Sea REEFER system from Fragbox corals?

In our opinion, the Red Sea reefer system is the easiest and most elegant reef ready aquarium on the market today. What does reef ready mean? The red sea reefer line comes ready to setup right out of the box. The traditional way of setting up a reef aquarium include buying an aquarium, sourcing a stand, drilling the tank, installing an overflow and custom plumbing, buying or even building a sump. With the all new reefer system setting up a salt water aquarium has never been easier. All of the tedious and difficult custom steps have been beautifully designed and taken care of by red sea.

REEFER™ Specification

REEFER™ aquariums are constructed from thick, beveled-edge, ultra-clear glass to support their elegant and modern rimless design.

The aquarium sits on a recessed base that “floats” it above the cabinet, which seamlessly follows the contour of the glass.

The marine-spec laminated cabinet that houses the sump, (and in the larger models also includes a dedicated, vented space for chillers) is smartly finished with weatherproof, epoxy-painted doors.

 

REEFER™ Water Management System

Removable surface-skimming combs surround the top of the centrally located overflow box that houses the downpipe, sump return pipe and the discreet multi-directional “eyeball” return outlet nozzle.

In the event of a blockage in the regulated downpipe, an additional emergency overflow pipe provides an unrestricted free flow of aquarium water directly to the sump.

 

Red Sea Reefer marine aquarium system - Water management system

 

On entering the sump the water passes through a 225 micron mechanical filter bag, before entering the filtration compartment that maintains a constant water height, making it suitable for all skimmers and other reactors.

In order to remove any air bubbles that may have escaped from the skimmer, the water passes through a bubble-stripping cascade on its way to the return pump chamber.

 

 

To ensure a constant water level in the pump compartment, all REEFER™ sumps include an integrated automatic freshwater top-up unit,  guaranteeing a constant, stable water flow throughout the complete system.

Supplied as a complete self-assembly kit, all pipe work is ready without the need for any gluing.
