Frag Tank FTS Thread

85 posts in this topic

Since we have a FTS thread that is a sticky, why not a frag tank FTS thread?

 

Same rules, no chatting, just one or two pics, tank discription and a link to your build thread if you have one. Edit your post with new pics as needed. Mines not up yet, who wants to start?

This is where I intend to place and grow out frags....seriously. I just wanted something that was a little nicer to look at than frag racks.

I plan on adding an over flow and have got some acrylic to cut for a sump that will fit under that stand and that's where he's gonna go. Most of that stuff is from my AP 24 and is being housed temporarily in this one while I was doing some mods to it. I will get a frag rack going after the sump and lights are installed to keep things off them. I have two monster herms in there. The other is on top of the rocks. They are local and have been in my tanks for about a year and a half now.

Here's mine.

Left to right:

10g ATO tank dumps into 20H sump with SeaClone Skimmer, connected to 30L via 2 U-tubes.

 

I have a small 10K Coralife Lite over the sump, next comes a 150W 10K MH & a 250W 14K MH light over the prop tank.

 

On the counter on the right is my 10g QT tank with an AquaClear 70 filter/sump & a 50/50 PC light.

Note the antique stove is still a very real part of the system.

From a few months ago, racks arent as high, and will be updated w/ some more money to make modular...

 

also added about 40 lbs of live rock to the sump.

Well done, I am thinking about a 75g frag tank and using my 30g as a sump. Did you paint the eggcrate or buy it black?
