    I had done a frag tank thread under the DIY section. I soon realized that a tank that small gets filled quickly........so I decided to upgrade.

    This is my new toy. It is 2'x3'x14.5". It has a built in sump area so the area that I actualy have to place my corals and such is 2'x2'x14.5".

    I made sort of a "spraybar" that extends on 2 sides of the the tank which will be connected directly to the return pump and at the same time I get water movement in the tank. I also added bio-balls to the overflow section.
