    I have a spare tank 90l (900mm x 300mm x 400mm), TS1 skimmer, 150w MH laying around.

    Do i set this up as a frag tank, or QT?

    Any suggestions?

    Whatever you do, you must have at least one divider. And water must fall over. Else you will get that surface gunk that you cannot remove.

    Been there, done that, now I got dividers.

    So I would put a divider in, so that chamber is just big enough to fit the TS1 skimmer. Maybe add a Auto top up.
