Howzit guys,
I want to look at the fragging options, but have a couple of questions..
1. Should i do the frags in my current tank with the fish ext,
2. or should i rather invest in a separte tank and system for this purpose?

Will be cool if someone can give some guidelines regarding the equipment needed for optimal conditions.
If i'm going for a new tank for fragging then i will probaly use a tank of about 200 to 500 liter. Not sure on the dim yet.

thanks

Well I suppose an ideal tank for fragging would be long and shallow, max 30cm high, if I had to do it I suppose I would just plumb an extra tank into my current system, it worked for me before and if I did it again I doubt I would make it a separate system, then you gotta buy new heaters/pumps/skimmer etc.

I really would like to add the new tank to current system, but the problem is space....:(

dude,if you have a DSB in your sump you can always add a fragsetup there by placing a light over it
I thought about that, but don't you need alot of flow for the frags - I don't have to much flow in my sump due to the DSB....

good stuff man,you wont go wrong.by the way,the fragsetup was lit by 2* 39W t5 whites and 1 t8 blue
Cool! I first want to test some of the softies... this will be a great starting point.
Will move to a larger setup once i got the hang of it...
When can one introduce the frags in the main tank with the fish?

Hi -just some feedback and more questions...
I've devided the kenia tree into tree today - hope that all will be ok with it.
I have 3 separate leather finger corals on one piece of rock - I want to remove two of these, but they are attached to the rock - how is the best way to get them of this rock, or is it better to break the rock into 3 pieces?
thanks

You could break the rock or you could just cut them off, although if you cut them you will more than llikely will get new growths from what is left behind.
