Frag Tank finished.

Just finished setting up my little frag tank. 15 gal ($10) 2x40 pc (free)light
HOB filter for flow (had it),heater and AGA stand (trade zoos)and the egg crate ($10)
Got my test Kenya in there with some GSP and PSP. Plan on putting overflow from my 125 in there.

thanks all...
Selling? I have thought about it.. The shipping is what worries me..
We trade alot of corals in the club Im in and we have another club near that we trade with also. Now Kenya Tree corals I have about 50 of and if I was to ship anything it would be them to try it.
As far as being full, after a week or so to make sure everything is running good I will start the move of xtra corals from the 125 into here.
Once I get a nice amount of coral and lr in here I plan on putting in a small fish or 2.

As long as the temps are decent, you can ship kenya tree USPS priority mail. I have done a lot of corals this way. Having the boxes, styro and bags is the hard part for me. It can be time consuming. I bought a 4x8 sheet of 1/2 insulation board and just make my own box liners. Just make sure you tape up the edges. I double bag the corals and the put a large bag either inside the styro or around the styro. UPS leaves some big bags if you mail order often in wet climates

SOmetimes LFS credit or local trades is easier

Back came drilled with bulkhead.. I got it from someone who bought a ton of tanks from a LFS going out of business.
Knock on wood, the tank has been very stable. Hve had little evaporation and have only added about a quart of top off water. Will probably do a 3-5 gal wc next week. Will test alk and cal also.

Took a few new pics of new coral and frags
new zoa rock

Orange frag from 125

New Red People Eaters

Full tank

Blue zoa frag from main
