The loft frag tank.

Recommended Posts

After my failed tank my wonderfully amazing fiancé gave me the idea of using an old turtle tank we had in the garage for a frag tank. So everything is in process.

 

Need some supplies still:

HOB filter. Thinking aqauclear 

Stand. 

The frag rack. 

Power head.

But first I'm doing a leak test and I think I do want to add more silicone to the corners

Any advice on what silicone to use. Thanks reefers!!!!

And bam!!! It's been up for 2 hrs now. I didn't get the filter yet. So I have the left over pump from the 14g biocube fail moving the water around. Also have the ceramic cylinders that I had in my other tank for 2 weeks to get some bacteria on them in there. Going to home Depot to get the frag rack project going.

Also I did a 10 gal water change from my biocube and dumped it in the frag tank. So I  theory the tank should be ready to go right????????

So update for my weekend. Moved the tank again. Got the pump and grabbed a few things from the hardware store.

 

Here's the pictures.

Way to push on after the first tank cracked. Solid setup. Better for a frag tank than the first even.

NVR is one giant family. You missed out on the BBQ yesterday. Hopefully we can get you to join us on the next one.

But keep up the progress. And feel free to ask any questions you have.
