    DIY heaven, acrylic cylinder is pretty darn expensive in those diameters and of course lengths and that looks new.

    I'm thinking of those people who'd like to clone a Geo Calcium Reactor, even a double chamber reactor.

    Yes! Good luck! And if you do get them and have some left overs, please let me know as I might be looking into some DIY projects. Thanks.

    Wow, are you getting that Mario?

    I want to DIY something. Maybe a camera box to take top down photos. Or a way to corral my clownfish onto my BTA =P

    That would be a fun get together. Mario can sketch out the plans and we can all build one!

    In principle it would not be such a hard job. You'd need a piece of acrylic bigger than the diameter of the tube and then cut out a hole a hair less than the diameter of the tube with a router and jig or CNC machine, then the hard part is route out a groove to put an o-ring. Then you can drill some holes, tap some threads, and some creative plumbing and you're golden. However being able to do a perfect circle is where it leaves the DIY realm unless you are very skilled. But find someone with a little CNC machine who can bang out a bunch of parts, then it's a matter of gluing and screwing everything together.

    Of course if those tubes are very thin walled, like for holding posters or something, then probably would not be such a good idea.
