While I enjoyed my small frag tank attached to the 400g reef, after four years it was due to be broken down. I also wanted to set up a bigger system, a stand alone system, that would allow me to grow out frags from my reef's cuttings, and provide a separate repository to hold some species safely in case the big tank ever had a nasty disaster. Plus, with a smaller tank I could do some product testing with normal sized equipment, something I really couldn't do with a 400g setup.

After about a year of saying I needed to do this, it's finally operational. The stand, tank, sump, ATO reservoir, doser container are all built (by me). Plumbing was accomplished and the new Vectra M1 pump is circulating the system. Here are some pictures, less than a day after water was added. The skimmer cleared the water overnight.
