View Full Version : JBJ 45 Questions

03/19/2017, 07:47 PM
I am seriously considering the JBJ 45...here's my concerns and questions:

I've heard the stand is cheap...I know it made of MDF..is it ok and will it properly support the tank or would I need to upgrade to an all wood stand?

Noise...I know its a rear sump...I am looking to do a tunze skimmer, reactor etc...question is how silent are these tanks? Are the louder than say a red sea reefer 170 with a closed cabinet sump?

I have this tank and the stand has supported it without issue for over a year. I run the tunze 9004 in the back and can't hear it at all across the room, but can hear it when standing next to the tank. I'm sure any equipment would be quieter in a sump inside the cabinet but if you buy good equipment, you should be fine. Good luck, it's a nice tank...however, just over a year and I'm already looking to upgrade to a 125G ;).

PS. The RL45 will become my quarantine tank when I get the larger tank.
