Hello everyone,

My first time posting a tank thread!
I currently have a 350gal SPS system. Recently it downed on me that I have no backup in case things go wrong, for this reason I decided to go with a small 24x24x8" frag tank. The goal here will really just be to hold frags and smaller colonies in case something goes wrong.

The goods have not arrived yet, but I thought would be a good idea to start from the beginning anyways, here's what I bought:

Tank: Coast-to-Coast AIO Rimless Frag Tank - 20in. x 20in. x 8in.
Light: Pre-owned - it will be a Kessil AP700.
Filtration: AIO - I plan to seed it with my media I currently have in my other system.
Filtration: NF-1 Nano Protein Skimmer - In-Sump - Aquamaxx.
Filtration: Syncra Silent 1.0 Pump (251 GPH) - Sicce + random flow generator.
Flow: I have two small gyres, planning on using that on alternate cycle, will probably be too much and I will end up using only one gyre.

And lastly, here is the picture of the tank, I will add more once stuff arrives and I start putting it together:


I am so excited for this build and can't wait to see how it will develop!

Thank you for reading my Build Thread!
