    2 weeks of nothing to do because of a company shutdown to save on expenses. I got bored, and so I end up setting up a frag tank. Here is the picture of the tank with out the sump.

    Then, I picked up a used CPR sump from Max.

    And the rest of the tank life support system.

    Perry, watch out for your tools getting rusty. How many Tunze Nano streams you put in there?

    I was close... ;) That's great. I was hoping to get to setting up my 40g frag tank over the "company shutdown" but ran out of time. I hope to get mine looped into my 120 DT over the next two weekends.

    nice tank to hold a lot of frags and colonies in time. what lights do you have for it and are you planning on lowering the lights, they look pretty high.

    U're right about those tools. They're actually getting rusted already. There are no tunze. I'm using two k4.

    Thanks. I got the tank from Jar*head (that is his RC name). It was unused when I got it from him. The tank is 1/2" thick, 48x24x10 with one overflow box. I paid $250 + $50 shipping.

    Thanks, Bill. The light is 4x54 tek5 used, hanging about 12" from the water surface. It will be replaced with 8x54w tomorrow if I have time.

    Man, I wish I had space to setup something like this! I love those big, shallow frag tanks.

    Great job! Looks very nice!

    Thanks for the comment, Alve.

    Hi, Arnold. My main tank looks ugly because of the frags I'm holding in there, and it is hard to clean the tank too because of those frags. With the frag tank, I can move the frags there, and it will be a lot easier to feed lps in shallow tank too.
