- Frag Tank Kit with Sump for Stony Corals
Wanting to start my own little business with this. By Christopher on 9/29/2014Christopher would recommend this product to a friendI got this item in the mail, set it up, and considering I haven't dealt with aquariums for years, and never with sumps, also know little to nothing about plumbing, I was able to set it up with little effort. I filled it to the level I wanted with 45 gallons, that's what I would say the capacity is for this kit, and am currently in the cycling stage. I would, however, recommend buying a thin threaded rod and drilling at a higher part of the sump a small hole to insert the rod, with 2 nuts and washers at the outer side to give support to the middle wide part of the sump, which does tend to curve a bit outwards from the water weight. I got these at home depot for about 3$.

what kind of light do you recomend for frag tray?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Kenneth,
It really depends on how much you want to spend on the light and upkeep, but we use a 48" 8 bulb ATI fixture on ours here. It has good spread and lights the tank very well. LED's would be a good option as well, cost a bit more up front but you don't have bulbs to replace every year, etc.

Why the gate valve on the main overflow? Isn't the flow rate controlled by the return pump? Seems like getting those out of sync could cause a problem.
Bulk Reef Supply The return pump will pump at a fixed rate. The gate valve is used in this type of setup (often called a "Herbie" drain) to control the drain and match the drain speed to the pump speed (this is significantly quieter then just about any other setup). If that were out of sync it would certainly be a problem, which is why their is a secondary drain as a backup should something slow the main drain and start to backup.

Frag tanks can be quite costly to set up. By combining a couple of durable trays, heavy duty stand and uprights, caster wheels and egg crates, reef hobbyists can be propagating their favorite stony corals at a fraction of the cost. Choose your favorite light fixture. We suggest a T5 light fixture (sold separately). Add powerheads such as Sicce Voyager pumps and a submersible Speedwave DC.
