Geo’s Reef is an interesting company that has been mostly making reactors and reaching users by word of mouth, but big changes are afoot for the grassroots company. This year the company changed ownership and with it, there’s been an injection of energy and momentum into Geo’s Reef.
This is the first time we can recall seeing Geo’s Reef exhibiting at a major aquarium show like MACNA, and they had a great new product to share with us this year. The R Series Sumps are Geo’s Reef first entry into the sump market and with a strong pedigree making reactors that hobbyists really love, they’ve made sure to carry over this feature to their first sumps.
We raved about the R Series Sumps when we first saw them in pictures and learned the specs and pricing, but seeing them in person just reinforced out first impression. The R Series Sumps are beautifully built, with tons of bells and whistles that reefers really care about.
Built-in heater holders, probe holders, dosing line holders are only part of the accoutrements of the Geo’s Reef R Series Sumps. A couple snug-fitting filter socks, the innovative new ‘float tree’ and an included media reactor really makes this one of the most feature-rich, plug and play reef sumps we’ve ever seen on the aquarium market.
Of course, what really drives our attraction to the R Series Sump is a very reasonable price tag, with the smallest 24″ sump costing a paltry $399, with very modest price increases for larger models. It also doesn’t hurt that these sumps are built with very high quality materials, made in America, and users have a choice of a stealthy black model, or a pristine white version.
