Yeah I have a couple of aptasia in the frag tank. Not that bad really. Got the JJ ready for them! That rock with the GSP on it was in a small tank of mine and I knew there was a couple of those nasty little guys in there. I'll take care of them!

Today I will be fragging an Acro that I have. I will try and take some pics of the process and post them here. I'm going to end up with so many frags from this that I will have to put the other egg crate in the tank soon!

How do you feed your frag tank? Phyto? And how often?

I don't feed my tank phyto at all. That just makes a mess and causes my skimmer to go nuts. My corals get what they need from frequent large PWCs and lighting. When we upgrade to the 210 I'm going to add a Calcium reactor to the system to keep the CA levels up.

Ziggy,

I know this is a bit late on the drilling, but I'm going to do a project very much like yours.

What size hole[s] did you drill, and where did you get your drill?

Thnx

Dave

I drilled 1 3/4" holes to use a 1" bulkhead. I got my drill bit from my LFS he carries a varity of sizes. It is one of those bits that you can't find at lowes or home depot. You will need to go to a glass shop or get one online. Check on ebay they usually have some available. When you get your bulkheads there should be a sticker on it to tell you what size hole you will need to drill.

When drilling your tank make sure to take your time and keep the area and the bit wet at all times. I had someone help me and they dripped water on the area while I was drilling. Also make sure to have a towel doubled up inside the tank where the piece of glass that you are removing will fall to keep it from busting the other side of the tank out.
