View Full Version : Reef Octo Regal 250 or Super Reef Octo SRO 5000 for 250gw/50g sump?

I am planning way ahead for a custom 48"x48"x24" tank. I am pretty set on the reef octo brand. I see the regals are on sale at BRS. Are they phasing them out. I see too the Super of the same size is rated a little higher gallons. Is it better to go that big of rating? I want to be over sized some but not way overkill as it would seem it wouldn't produce skimmate very often.

Yes I am open to other brands, but not really interested in some of the prices such as LR and such. I am a big fan of Euro Reef which is now Reef Dynamics but the price there is really high too. I can't see why a reef octo wouldn't work well.

Tank will be a mixed reef but I am starting to focus on sps with at most a medium stocked tank. Most likely light stocked as I enjoy coral more than fish.

I have the SRO 5000 external on a heavy stocked 350 gallon total system. It would be as big as you need to go.
