A “frag tank? is just another tank to hold any corals that you are currently propagating from your main display.

I've looked at your plumbing pictures many times and I still can't understand any of it. I would love to understand how your sump works but without labelling the returns on teh side and flow direction etc I'm just lost. For instance you have Return to Frag or something labellined on the top. Not sure if that's supposed to be return from frag as surely water isn't coming out the top but flowing into it etc.

If you could take some time to explain it I'd really appreciate it, You said before you were having issues with microbubbles, has that worked itself out?

So no pics bart? Or your frag/sump tank is not up and running yet?

I was just thinking it was pretty impressive for a guy that never ran a reef tank before.

What do the three pipes flowing down into the middle of the sump do? And is that a drip tray area, or just a sponge to stop microbubbles?

We use a lot of acronyms in this hobby when typing online.

BB - bare bottom, as in no sand
fuge - a refugium, a section that allows pods of all kinds to breed with no predation that would consume them.

Bart, I never get tired of looking at those pictures. They absolutely kill me. I started my plumbing today after seeing those again.
