Continuing an annual tradition, our media team visited Global Pet Expo to check out all of the great new products coming to market. It was the there that we met up with the crew from Red Sea who had a gorgeous new line of aquariums set up. These sleek, rimless beauties, wrapped in ultra-clear beveled glass sat atop professional grade laminate marine cabinets, concealing an equally gorgeous glass sump with filter socks, automatic top-off (ATO), and generous space for a skimmer, heater, and anything else you'd want to add.
While perusing the aisles on the trade show floor, we always see friendly, familiar faces; industry members striving hard to develop and refine their products to spark envy among aquarists, joined by retailers at the show, seeking to stock their shops with these showstopping spectacles. One such individual would be our friend Brad from The Fish Tank of Daytona Beach, who just last year, more than quadrupled the size of his previous location, building a new aquarium retail store from the ground up. Later that day, we met up with the excited business owner who relayed he had just purchased the entire Red Sea REEFER line for his shop!
We knew we had to have this amazing display in our show, but timing was off. That being said, we are pleased to announce that the Red Sea REEFER 250 will be on display at this years Immersed Aquatic Art Show!
Our friends over at Poseidon Construction, master craftsmen at creating synthetic coral inserts and appliances for aquariums of all sizes, have skillfully created a CFLAS-branded centerpiece that will be on display in the Red Sea REEFER 250.
Naturally, it seemed only fitting to involve Brad and his award-winning team from The Fish Tank of Daytona Beach to set up the tank that put him on the map as being the first authorized dealer in the entire nation to offer the new Red Sea REEFER line of aquariums, designed with the advanced hobbyist in mind.
