Default Opinions on Red Sea Reefer series Nano and 170

Hi all.

Not a lot of reviews on info on here regarding the models I am looking at.
Has anyone had any experience with them?

I am leaning more towards the 170.
But in either case I want the model with the sump.

Also where is the best place to get one?

King Ed used to sell Red Sea aquariums As did J&L ( they have display units of ther older series in store as you may know) but I think aquariums west down town is the only one selling them. Think prices are more or less the same everywhere.

King Ed’s, JL, Fish Addicts and Aquariums West all sell them but they have to order it in for you.

JL may have one model on display but it’s usually a larger model.

Fish addicts has i believe the 625 xxl deluxe model on their floor.

Aquariums west has the nano or the 170 on the floor (not sure, maybe call to confirm)

Regardless they all can get it for you so you can see who gives the best price. If they have to order in for you, there are some online retailers too so you can compare for pricing including shipping. However you would think one of them would at least price match for you. Good luck!

I just bought the Redsea Reefer nano from here

https://www.reefsupplies.ca/online-s...ed-Sea-reefer/

it was $75 extra for shipping but it was shipped to my door, shipping seemed reasonable since it came from Quebec.

I paid around $1099 plus shipping and i only paid 5% taxes. I'm pretty sure its 12% in BC which adds up since its a fairly large purchase.

My brother in law has the Reefer 170 and he loves it so it just comes down to the size you want or how much you want to spend. If my wife would have allowed it, i would have gotten the 170 just because its a little bigger but the nano is still pretty nice looking

Thanks for all the replies.

That is great. I have heard great things about them but only the odd review.
If I was closer to Edmonton I would buy the one that was up for sale by Sliver.

Would anyone know if one AI prime would be enough for the 170? It'd mainly be a softies and LPS at most tank.
