    So @Apon set me on this path after peeking at my tank. Essentially using some magnetic rocks to create a floating shelf and get more real estate in my tank.

    Awesome idea and the best I have come across so far is this -

    Anyone know any alternates?

    Any of our sponsors stock anything similar?

    @jestersix has some magnetic frag mounts. Not sure what all he’s got.

    Looking for something ~ 8" + x 4" or 5" wide .... Before I consider spinning my own
  4. @jestersix can make them custom. Best in the business, one of our sponsors and he'll be at the show with his own table tomorrow.

    I stopped by at the CFM and we chatted a little about what I was looking for. Still planning things out but will reach out when I am a little more concrete on my plan. Thanks!

    We noticed that when we had a frag rack on the glass, some members of our clean up crew (hermit crabs, shrimps, and emerald crabs) couldn't get up to it to clean and we ended up with a lot of gha.

    I only have snails right now, and if they don't get their lazy asses up there I'll be having words! ;)

    I got sick of moving my frag rack when I do glass cleaning, and frags falling off from time to time. So I went with frag tank and clean DT free of frag racks

    Still dosing, ph goes from ~ 8.04 up to 8.15 daily and the Mag is pretty constant too!

    I have some diatom stuff going on, but it's pretty minor, just on the sand and waiting for it to figure itself out.
