Aviad, I just ordered my S400 from the LFS here in the DFW area, i know they sold three this past week so it is a very hot item. Mine should be in by midweek, I look forward to sharing my experience with my first Red Sea aquarium. I understand the concerns with the lighting choice with all of these LED products out today but as long as there is an upgrade path should LEDS prove to be acceptable I do not see how i could go with any other option. Thanks for sharing all of the information regarding this new product.

If I can help you in anyway don't hesitate to ask.
Looking forward to following your thread!

Hello,

Iím excited for you guys, I just came back last week from a show, and helping a friend of mine to assemble and design his MAX S-650, and setting my own MAX250, what a week!! (3 tanks setups)
I hope I can post some pictures from the show and my creations soon, but tonight Iím exhaustedÖ

All the best,
Aviad

My wife and I have been anxiously following the S series since we first heard about them a year or so ago. We have a spot in our basement waiting for the S650, but I'm pretty sure we have a bit of a wait, yet, being up in Canada.

Is there any word yet on availability in Canada (Ottawa, specifically)?

Thanks,
Russ

Hi Aviad

Awesome Pictures thanks for showing us them. Cannot wait for my RSM650 to arrive. Just a few question i have. "I like your scaping in 1st and last picture". Could you advise how many KG's live rock ( or Base rock?) you used and as well as live sand?
I prefer the white sand as apposed to black in the 1st picture. Did you use Arag Alive ? and which one if i may ask

Hi,
A 1/4 or a 1/3hp chiller would do the trick.
It all depends on the outside temp. and the chiller's specifications.

Your welcome, I have a few more, coming up soon....
I don't know exactly how many Kg went in.
I always get more than I need...
I assume it was around 100-200Kg.
It depends on how porous or dense the rocks are.

The Live send I usually use is Arag-Alive, from CaribSea.

The specific sand for that tank was Hawaiian Black.

There is the Indo-Pacific that has more white particles in it.


If you like white send, I recommend a mix of Fiji pink and either Special Grade reef sand or FCC(Florida Crushed Corals), which is actually not corals but a nice size assortment of reef sand bad.(All of them are Arag-Alive)

I used 8 20lbs. bags Ė 160lbs of live sand for the MAX S-650, that was the depth I was asked to.

In my opinion, I would have been happy with half the amount.
I like a shallow send bad.
Hope I helped.
All the best,
Aviad

Aviad, Im considering an s-500 system.
I have a nice place for it, but my only concern is that I wouldn't have access to the back of the tank. (tank will be inside a hole already made in the wall).
How important is to have clearance and access to the back of the system.
Thanks.

I hope you can help me with something. I currently have a RSM 250 and I am waiting for my S-650 to show up at my house. The issue I'm having is how to transfer to the larger system without killing any of my soft corals or fish. Obviously right now I have about 60 gallons to use from my 250, if I transfer everything over can I add new water to top off the remaining 110 gallons? I'm not sure how to go about this, a good problem to have but a problem non the less.

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Hi,
Itís important to have access to the back part.
All the pipes and the water level valve is there in addition to the circulation pumps.
One more thing is if the walls block the tank in both sides, you will have to take the hood down once or twice a year to change the bulbs.

The system you have now has enough biological filtration, as long as you move the system and rocks to your new tank all you need to do is make sure the new water have the same parameters.
Slowly fill the water and let all the creatures adjust.
The problems stat when you add more rocks and sand and the new system needs to finish cycling first.
My way to do it would be to run the 2 systems, design the new MAX S-650 let it cycle and then introduce the new life from the old tank as if you bought them from the store.


Hope I helped.
Aviad

Aviad,

Thanks for the info. Of course, I can never make anything that easy in my life. What I'm trying to do is transfer everything over as well as putting the 650 in the spot where the 250 is right now. I've rinsed new crushed coral and I'm almost done cycling 100 lbs of dry rock with Dr. Tim's one and only and ammonium chloride fish free cycle. It's finishing up the cycle as we speak. With that info (new rock already cycled, new crushed coral and old system) do you think it'll be safe? I can always just put the tank in a different spot if you think it's too risky.

I bought my 650 on the 13th of June, hopefully someone else isn't enjoying it.

Hi,
With dry rocks and sand I wouldn't risk it.
Run the cycle and only after the Ammonia and NO2 dropped and you started reducing NO3 to normal levels, start the move.
All the best,
Aviad

Well, it's setup. I must say between my friend and I that tank was HEAVY!! The stairs presented an issue but non the less it's all ready to go, just putting the doors on now. I don't know if I'll add any sort of media reactor and I definitely do not want to get into dosing (kalk, Ca, etc) but I can already tell by the way everything has been thought of that I'll be as successful as I am with my 250. The only issues I have which is just a small one is that I didn't get a stool I see in so many pics. What a nice stool it is Thanks for your advice thus far Aviad.

You are right for being anxious because this aquarium is so nice looking. Be careful where you place it because the lights are blinding and it sits about three feet above my couch. I'm talking blinding!!

Specs for the S650

I've been looking to find the specs for the S650 but the pdf files I keep finding seem to be corrupted and only the first page is loading. Is there some place else I can get this information?

Thanks

Thank you for letting me know.
I'll take care of it.

In the meantime I took a few shots of the actual brochure:
