    Adding a third tank (prop tank) to my setup

    I was wondering how i would go about adding a third tank to be used as a prop tank for sps corals to my current system, would it work if i drilled a tank and installed an overflow and ran it to my fuge, then just had another powerhead in my fuge to pump into it ?

    Yup!!! Make sure you have good flow though. Even though it's only a prop tank, it has to be SPS suited.
