  • frag grow-out/stock tank

    I have a small internet business that is starting to grow. I need more room to hold stock and frags. I'd like to set it up using ZEOvit, but I'm not quite sure how. Tell me how this would work.
    If I set up a reefready tank w/out lr and put a skimmer, cal reactor, and ZEOvit, will that be enough to maintain the tank? I'm wanting to put eggcrate stairstepped throughout the tank for optimum space. Any help would be appreciated.

    It will work without live rock but I suggest using "some" just for added filtration. Just put the live rock under the eggcrate or in the sump

      I figured I'd probably have to use some lr. But this is one thing I was thinking about doing- buying one of those 100+ gallon tubs from a Tractor Supply, filling the base up w/lr, adding eggcrate 10" below the surface of the water w/a sump of course w/ZEOvit, cal reactor, and skimmer. Will the lr get enough light or does it need light? The eggcrate and corals will be above it.

        does not need light at all..... since you do NOT need macro algae witht he zeo system!

        you will be very happy!

          that sounds like a good plan. You don't need light on it. The bacteria don't mind

            I would put the LR in the sump so that you can do siphoning of the detritus that the rocks shed without disturbing the Frags at the grow-out tank

              LR in the sump is the way to go!
