A stand-alone frag tank with all its gear

This is a picture of the frag system which has been running for nearly a year.  For the most part it is on autopilot:  

  • ATO reservoir replenishes evaporation throughout the day.
  • Skimmer pulls out waste and cup is emptied twice a week.
  • Apex measures pH & temperature.
  • Mechanical timer activates LED lights.
  • Vectra M1 and Vortech Mp10 are both plugged into a battery backup in case of a power failure.
  • Three dosers maintain alkality, calcium and magnesium.
  • Autofeeder drops in flake food once a day.

I measure water parameters about once a week, adjusting gear as needed.  I add some frozen food each evening. And aiptasia get dealt with monthly.
