As it's name implies, my old frag tank.

Tank: Waterbox 20G
Circulation pump: Ecotech MP10W (Reef Crest mode at 80%)
Light: Radion G4 Pro XR30 (Coral Lab template @45%)
ATO: SpectraPure Ultra Precise ATO
Controller: Apex 2016
Dosing: Seapora CaRx fed via Kamoer

Nothing fancy and just reusing old gear. The smallest Tonga rock grouping from the old 87G.

Need to pick up a skimmer for the back chamber and considering the IceCap K1 nano skimmer. They're all out of stock and won't be back in stock until the end of the month from what I've gathered. It's either gonna go into the first chamber or the second depending on how accurate their measurements are. I'll stick a cut up Marinepure block in whichever compartment isn't being used in the back.

The other option is to run the tank skimmerless and just stick with doing 5G water changes weekly/biweekly. I do tend to feed pretty heavily in the past and want to go mixed reef with sps, as in the previous tank, so not too thrilled about this. Have plenty of time to decide on this as the tank is cycling (with a couple of frags already :rolleyes:).

Fish:
Female Divided Leopard Wrasse

Inverts:
Scarlet Reef Hermit Crabs (x2)
Tigertail Cucumber
Sally Lightfoot Crab (female)
Banded trochus (x5)

Ordered the Icecap K1 nano skimmer and will be testing that out once it arrives. Also took a Marinepure 8x8x4 block (unused block that I had stashed away) and cut it down to 3x3x8 and stuck it in the first chamber.

Decided to set up the CaRx instead of doing the 2-part. Still have a couple of Kamoer pumps so felt that it would be a waste if I didn't reuse one of them. Also added some Monti caps to the tank a couple of weeks ago to see how they would fare. One of the caps was broken up into 3 smaller pieces so I just mounted them on some rubble and they've been slowly fusing back together.

After observing the Montis for a couple of weeks, I went to Neptune yesterday and picked up a few Acro testers from their $10/20 tanks. Polyps were out on them ~30 minutes after being tossed into the tank (after the Bayer dip/scrub) so we'll see how they'll do.

I’ve been looking at that. Curious how you like it, specifically if it’s quiet or not.

I am using the IM bio skim on my nano and it’s good but is the loudest component

those acros look nice, Neptune has been getting some really cool acros recently!

Will do.

Neptune has some nice frags for sure that goes through their tanks. I've been contemplating about having the tank be fully filled with wild/maricultured frags versus named pieces. I'm familiar with many of the named sps out there and I've seen variations of them come in.
