Although you might get better than pizza and beer for helping move!! Pizza, beer and frags....what could be better

I do have a question, what is the tall acrylic cylinder (attatched to a mag drive pump) in front of the sump to the left in the pics.

Forgive my ignorance here... I'm assuming a frag tank is simply a tank to keep coral frags in for later sale or whatever? Also, what is a refugium?

Your correct on the frag tank being a special tank designed excusivlly for the grow out of coral frags for sale/trade.

A refugium is simply an aquarium with no fish and no preditors. There are many types of fuges (aka refugium). You can use them to grow macro algae, be a place for small crustations like pods to live and multiply and since these tanks are connected to your main tank they can also feed and filter your main tank.

So, if you didn't really want a DSB in your tank, or a ton of LR for that matter, you could run your water through another tank which would house both, thus giving you the benifits of DSB and LR without actually having them in your display tank?

Yes you could do that, but you would need enough LR in the secondary tank to filter both volumes of water, not to practical IMO.

Well, it was just a "for instance." Thanks for clearing that up for me.
