    hey Guys,

    I am thinking about adding a small coral frag tank to my existing setup.

    The idea is to simply set this tank up between the overflow output from my existing DT and make it's output lead directly to the existing sump.

    Will this work? Can i simply increase the volume of my existing DT be about 30%? The tank will be plain glass, with no substrate, only eggcrate, for my frags and baby corals.

    Thx, i know the best advice in the world comes from here!!

    heres a pic!

    you should rather just put in another pump in the return chamber and that will go to the frag tank and the FT overflow will join the DT overflow in the inlet chamber of the sump. If you have the FT after the DT's overflow then you will just have a dirty FT
