Looks great man. Where did you get those trays that are mounted to the tank wall to hold frags? I've seen them but always forget to ask when is see them.

Those are made of egg crate. It was like 10 bucks for a 4' sheet of it at Home Depot. I just glued them to a couple of magnets. Those were part of a frag rack I was making for someone else, but I ran out of time to make my own. So I chopped that one up to make those.

And thanks guys.

Current USA Nova Extreme Pro 6x54 T5's

I wanted to do MH, but I felt that I couldn't handle the heat without a chiller.

Looking very nice!

Did you spay the egg crate with flat black Krylon? looks good.

Yeah the whole piece was painted. Then I had to cut it down, hence the jagged white edges on the front. I've got some more made up that will look better when I get a chance to finish them. But painting the egg crate really makes the rack kind of disappear in the background.

I like it! I assume that it is reef safe since you don't seem to have any problems.

Yeah, I've seen and read where other folks used Krylon fusion with no problems. My return pipe is also painted and it's been in there with no problems. I'm thinking about also painting that overflow box I got from you so it doesn't stand out as much.

Nice assortment of corals. Tank is looking good!

Yep, looking good- what's that bright green stickie thing on the frag rack.. the thing in the middle..?

It was sold as a green digitata. But those colors really pop under my lights. It got blown off the rack and was sitting on the sand and still held those colors. It's a really cool piece.

Looks great. I would highly suggest moving both of those brains off of the frag racks and onto the sand. They are low light corals.
