    Hey guys, Looking to start a small 2.5 gal - 5 gal frag tank that I will have plumbed into the sump of my main tank. Just looking for opinions on good but fairly inexpensive nano tank LEDs that are great for frag tanks. Thanks

    Hey Y'all! So I have a spare 20 long tank just sitting around, a big HOB filter, light, extra pumps, heater, etc etc. Basically, everything to start another tank. But I don't particularly like having two DTs to manage. I thought it would be very cool to setup a frag tank! Without using a sump...

    Selling a 20L tank and metal/wood stand for $35. Originally bought it to use as a frag tank at our place but realized the space I have for a frag tank needs something totally enclosed. Purchased an alternative so this is in the garage and must go. Selling for $35 FIRM. I paid $40 for the stand...

    I'm thinking about giving my 10 gallon fresh water tank a good scrub down and converting it into a 10 gallon frag tank. I currently have a 45 gallon reef that I've had set up for a few month now. For the frag tank do I need a powerhead and if so what's a good low powers one that could work on a...

  8. The THINK Tank
    I am designing a new frag tank and am thinking that i want to try natural lighting. People have had great success with sky lighting of many different styles including the Solatube. The problem that I have is that i live in a rental house and do not think my landlord would appreciate the...

    i was hoping to add pictures, but the TRT Gallery is still having a few issues, so i will go ahead and get this started. i know i have had a lot of false starts in the past, and you all thought i would never get another tank started, but i am significantly on my way now. this is going to be...

    I ordered this frag tank: http://www.ebay.com/itm/16x16x6-Acrylic-Frag-Tank-Aquarium-/281580449882?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item418f80b05a I was wondering what would be the best drain to use on it and should I just use my main tanks return pump to pump water to this tank to? Or is a new pump...

    I work at a public aquarium. I have recently set up a small 30 gallon frag tank at my desk. I designed the tank to be low maintenance. It is bare bottom, skimmerless, and has a couple of eggcrate racks which i put on stands (i used plastic uplift tubes from undergravel filters as stands) I also...

    Looking to add a 40gal frag tank to my display tank system. Right now I have a 93cube lps dominant reef with a 36 gal refuge roughly 20gal holding volume so with the new tank I'll be around 150 gal total. Right now I have a mag drive 950 for my display and looking to upgrade my pump so I can...

    well its been exactly a year since my gf and I set up our 75. Its a stock deep blue 75 with a 2'x2' frag tank and mangrove saucer. The mangrove started as a seed and I hope to trim into a bonsai as time progresses. The stand is 8' long and is completely open which makes maintenance very easy...

    Hello everyone, it's been a while since I have been on here so apologies. Trying to raise newborns during tough economic times left me with no money or time. My 29 biocube looks like Crap. Anyways i have this idea to build a shallow reef tank. They have been capturing my interest lately. So at...
  15. SPS Coral Forum
    I have a big order of tiny frags being put together (zoas, palys, and some SPS). I don't want to put them in my main tank when they arrive since my CUC will annoy them and other reasons. So I want to let them grow in a dedicated frag tank. I have 2 cheap 10g Tetra aquariums and want to...

    So I think I have a bit of a dilemma with the pumps I currently have. I had a 36g bow front tank and at the time I was replacing the equipment in it with the idea that I would be going to at least a 100g tank. Well instead of going that big I got a heck of a deal on a Deep Blue Professional...

    After a few years in the hobby and two successful tanks later I am feeling pretty confident in my abilities as a reef geek. I'm starting to think about the future with my 150g. I'm a big fan of frags as opposed to buying whole colonies of coral. Not just for the price either. I think it's cool...

    Hi, I was thinking of starting a frag tank and I had some questions about them. First, it seems that most people have a low, wide tank, something about 12" or so high and 24" wide. Why is that? I have a spare 75g tank that I was thinking of using and I had thought to build a shelf out of...
