After months of slow progress and a general lack of motivation, the AquaNerd frag tank is finally up and running. I had assembled the plumbing a few weeks ago and was awaiting the arrival of the return pump, which was the last piece to the puzzle. The pump is not a hard to find piece of equipment, I just never got around to ordering it. But the tank is full of water and the skimmer was fired up. I will wait a few weeks before adding any livestock, which will initially come in form of donor frags that several friends have offered to give me. The tank is still cloudy since I’ve had to add salt directly to the setup and I decided to remove the sand completely, but the skimmer and some carbon should clear it up.
