I noticed your budget on the chiller.  Not sure if you're doing a canopy or what, but I eliminated the expense of my chiller by using 2 fans on my 400 gallon system.  These will drop the temp as much as 10 degrees.  My apex is set up to kick them on when the temp hits X and turn off when the temp drops to X. I tried MANY variations of where to put these fans, including the sump.  I'll tell you this, pointing them straight down on the water brings the temp down much much faster than pointing them across the top of the water.

SPS : ALK Issues

First I want to thank everyone for responding, I haven't been on in the last couple days because the forum was down for some reason. I posted the same question on reef2reef and have been getting a ton of help from that forum as well. 
I will try and answer all the questions that you guys have though and thanks for the input! I have used a lot of it as it was the same answers I got from the other forum. 
First off turns out my test kits were very expired. So I went and bought new testing kits and got some crazy different results when I tested on Monday. My plan has been to test on this past Monday, let nature take its course and test again on this upcoming Monday. 
Alk-9.8Calcium-400-I've been dosing this now every other day because it does dip down and I think I have it figured out. So far so good. Magnesium- I haven't tested this for a long time and was just assuming  that it was stable so I stayed with my regular dosing of 40ml every other day. Turns out that was a no no, Mag was off the Chart as well. Dosing has been since stopped. Phosphates- Didn't have a test so I will be taking water in to get it looked at. Salinity-1.026Nitrates-Have been consistently at 25-50. I can never seem to get them to go down. 
Now during this process it seems to me that my SPS especially have stopped receding, the ones that I lost, or that had issues seemed to already be struggling and this was the last straw. The rest are holding strong and while not really growing at the moment, they have full polyp extension and seem to be happy. I picked up 4 new SPS frags a couple weeks back and they are all happy. 
I have been using pre-made saltwater from Aquatic Evolution and his was is always on point.   I 5 gallon water change every Saturday for those of you that asked. 
So for now I seem to be riding down the slippery slope fairly well as I let everything settle back in to form. I'm hoping I can get my dosing back on schedule and can see some growth again! Thanks for the help and I will keep you posted on Monday what happens.

If it were me... I would go 250 without a doubt. Like Marcoss said, you will have more footprint to work with. If I could plumb a brand new tank, I would also focus on making it as quiet as possible. I would also ditch the T5's and chiller and add LED's and a nice UV.  I won't run another larger reef without a good UV. Probably would only have 1 300W heater as well until I saw a definite need to add another. I don't think there any reason to wait 3 months to cycle and another 3 for adding livestock with the cultured bacteria on the market today.

If it was me, I would go with the 250G.
I have an older Red Sea Max S400 and although I love it a ton, the area to work in is rather cramped. With a larger tank, like a 250G, you will have a massive footprint to add and hide equipment under.
I think you can cut costs, if you wanted to. I paid around $2k for my Red Sea, with my upgraded skimmer and pumps, versus $5k retail. The opportunity arose and I snagged it quickly. Just the other day, I saw a super nice set up, value around $20k, for around $8k. 
I would also check out both tanks in person. I think you will be impressed when you see a 250G in person far more than a Red Sea. There is something awesome about that deep dimension.

The dart pump on my skimmer is crazy loud. When I shut off the air intake the nose is cut 90%. That doesn't sound like bearings to me, am I wrong?

I would go with the 250 if it fits your home well and you plan to be there awhile. Bigger is better. I agree with other posts, you should be able to shave some costs here and there and you won't need all of the equipment right at first.

Get the essentials and start cycling the tank and moving to water stability. After the initial setup take the next 3 months to add lights, controllers, skimmers, additional water movement, etc. Take the next 3 months to add your corals/more fish (which will be a good chunk of change in itself).



I agree with you, the planning and putting the pieces together is one of the funnest parts of our hobby. Here's a new starfire setup on sale that you may or may not have considered.

I have this for sale, its the gray collar.

I have finally figured out how to tune this, but this needs a bigger bio load/tank.

This should go on a 200+gallon tank

I will be receiving my new skimmer on Tuesday, it will be available then. You can come see ithe in action.

Been a great skimmer, let me know questions.

Good point evan... he'll want to add a few powerheads to that reefer. The return pump alone isn't sufficient.

The lights are gone but I still have the controller. I'll just hold onto it until someone is willing to come out to Stansbury Park to get it.
