It seems to me that if you want to set up a frag tank, which is a great idea, you would be better off if you would get the one you want, rather than throwing away money on the Meijer kit and having to replace most of what you are getting in the kit. I like a frag tank plumbed into the entire system with the display tank, sump, skimmer and so on, so you get the advantages of your system. If you have a frag tank ala carte', I think you will find it difficult to keep clean, plus you will wind up having to have a separate skimmer, separate heater and on and on. I got a 18 X 24 X 15 tank for about $50.00, built a stand for it, plumbed it into the system, added the proper lights (retro fit 24" T5s which I already had) and it is a nice size (24 gallons or so) for raising corals. I think a 10 gallon will wind up being too small for you. Put your new corals down on the sand and spend some time designing your frag tank.
I have a 5.5g frag tank for sale comes with the frag rack and a return pump and full LED lighting and stand for it with moonlights as well for $60 only if you want it i work in canton just let me know and we can meet around lunch or after 4pm during the week. so really $60 plus the price of a heater for a LED setup mini frag tank.
