I am building a frag set up to bring to frag shows. I'm looking for tips and tricks for transporting and setting up a frag tank at a frag show.

I mostly have sps. Everytime I have brought frags to a lfs they look like crap after the trip. I build a storage bin with a 250w heater and a small power head for transport. I have building an obsession racks to hold things in place.

I think all of these things will help reduce stress. My worry is by the time I get to the show, the water in the frag carrier will be pretty nasty. I would like to transport my own water to the show. I need about 30gallon.


Do you guys have any tips or tricks on getting water there and keeping stress to a minimum. When sps stresses it loses color. I want my frags at their best when at the show!

I don't have the link but Reef News Network did a podcast a while ago with a fairly detailed discussion about this very topic. Good luck with your adventure!
