Reefer Deluxe 3XL 900 Aquarium (Black) 240 Gallons with 4 x ReefLED 90 Light Fixtures - Red Sea

Red Sea is expanding their range of REEFER™ systems with 4 new models which still maintain the familiar rimless format and clean lines of the REEFER series. The impressive, 900 liter / 240 gal. REEFER 3XL 900 model offers hobbyists the freedom to create a truly spectacular reef. 200 cm / 79” long, and 65 cm / 25.6” high and wide, the 3XL 900 introduces an enlarged overflow box with dual side-facing return pump outlets and increased surface skimming that provides ideal water circulation in the tanks with flows of up to 10,000 lph / 2600 gph. These new features have also been implemented on the latest version of the XXL 750 V3 giving it a new look and significantly improved flow dynamics. Both of these systems come complete with fittings to attach either a single or dual return pumps.

A unique feature of the 3XL 900 is a split sump system that provides unsurpassed flexibility. The main sump is set for the usual filtration functions with an optional refugium chamber and a dedicated adjustable height skimmer chamber. The sump extension (60 liters/ 16 gal.) can be connected to the main sump and used for additional filtration, as a larger refugium or even as a dedicated frag tank. Alternatively, it can be set up as an independent unit and used as a full-size (83 liters / 22 gal.) RO reservoir or saltwater reservoir for automated water changes.

4 new REEFER™ models, dramatically expanding the range of its premium reef-ready aquariums to include the XL 200, XL 300, XXL 750 V3, & 3XL 900.

Furthermore, as part of the continued commitment and support of its aquarium systems, Red Sea is enabling all first buyers to register online to extend the standard 2-year warranty on all aquariums for an additional 1 year at no cost.

Red Sea REEFER Deluxe Concept

The REEFER™ Deluxe incorporates the all-new ReefLED™ lighting units with Red Sea’s custom mounting system into the REEFER reef ready systems in a convenient single package.

At the heart of the ReefLED is a compact Led array that provides a reef-safe range of REEF-SPEC light through a single REEF-SPEC Blue (23,000 Kelvin) channel that consists of an optimum combination of ultraviolet, violet and blue LEDs and an 8,000 Kelvin white channel.

In addition, it has a separate dedicated 3W Moonlight channel to provide the low levels of light for reef-safe nighttime viewing.

The ReefLED includes a single optical-glass, hollow lens that creates a homogenous light, giving a dramatic coral coloration and a gentle shimmer throughout the aquarium.

ReefLED is controlled by Red Sea’s ReefBeat® App which provides a wide range of easy to use functions such as random clouds, acclimation for new installations and a lunar cycle for the moonlights.

The custom mounting system attaches firmly onto the rear wall of the tank and can be rotated to the upright position during reefscaping or other tank maintenance. The REEFER™ Peninsula Deluxe come with a customized hanging system for the ReefLED™ lights.

REEFER™ Deluxe is available for all models with 1, 2, 3 or 4 LED units according to model.

Features of the Red Sea REEFER™ 3XL 900 Deluxe include:

  • Rimless, ultra-clear, beveled edge glass aquarium
  • Elegant, reinforced plywood marine-spec cabinet with aluminum support
  • Dual side-facing return pump outlets with fittings for one or two pumps
  • Enlarged overflow box for increased surface skimming
  • Unique split sump system for unsurpassed flexibility:

    • Extension sump (60 liters/ 16 gal) can be used as a dedicated frag-tank or refugium. Alternatively, it can be disconnected and used as an independent reservoir of 83 liters / 22 gal.
  • Silent, regulated down-flow system with emergency overflow
  • Integrated automatic top-up system with reservoir
  • Assembly-ready piping – no gluing required
  • 4 ReefLED™ 90 lighting units with Red Sea’s custom mounting system
