Yea one would probably work depending on the size of tank. You can place frags accordingly, high light in middle, low light off to the edge. I'm actually debating on setting up a frag tank myself that I made. Not 100% on lighting of I do yet, but those are an option. Mine is right under 15 gallons.

Nice, i like the rimless look! What are the dimensions on that?

As for me, the 15g is a standard 2 foot tank. It's still on hold for now though. I've got my hands full with planning the cube and such. I also picked up a jebao RW-8 for the upcoming build and it is pushing water at an unbelievable rate. A little overkill for my 32 but i've got no dead spots and have yet to see any signs of stress.

Plus... New corals coming soon! I should be picking up 2 acan frags in a couple of days, one being an ultra! The list also includes a purple tip gold torch and possibly a green tip aswell

The frag tank is 24" L, 18" W, & 8" T. I wanted it to be the same width as my 40 breeder so I could put it beside it and build the stand to match. But this is down the road. Need to upgrade some equipment and will also have to scoot the tank down like 6" and somehow move my hanging light (ceiling mount) to get things how I want it. The new corals sound cool, can't wait to see them.

That's a great footprint for a frag tank. I'd love to make something similar but I don't think I'd trust myself lol

I should be picking up the frags tomorrow so I'll try to get photos up by tomorrow night.

So, I finally found time to get some quick pictures! Unfortunately, they're crappy iPhone shots that do absolutely no justice but they're better than nothing! Here goes...

Tricolor Valida and Ultimate Bonsai. Not looking their best but they are fresh cuts.



Acan 1



Ultra Acan



Gold Torches. Also fresh cut which resulted in a little gold loss but it's still there! I'm gonna try to get the DSLR out again because the iPhone makes them look brown/purple



Also, what is the best wrasse for pest control? I was thinking of a six line but I know they can be quite the little troublemaker. Plus, I'd like to have a second wrasse in the cube if possible.

Quick Update.

I'm thinking of getting another RBTA. I know i had to get rid of the last one due to its size but they're just too cool. I'm also thinking of adding a six line wrasse to my tank just for pest control. I've had a few issues with some sps corals and i feel that a wrasse might help ease the stress. Now, i haven't physically seen anything and i'm not sure whether high nitrates were a factor (which is now fixed) but i'd like to have a fail safe.

Anyway, I finally cleaned out the 24x24x18 cube and I'm really excited for this build. I was a little hesitant due to its lack of length but i'm really starting to like its foot print. However, I'm not set on whether i want to drill it or not. I'd obviously love to have a sump, but i don't know if i can trust myself to drill it. In the meantime, I'm going to devise some plans for a DIY stand, which will also be my first!
