Magnetic frag rack

(1/5) > >>

Chessmanmark:
I'm accumulating quite a few frags on the bottom of my tank so I've been thinking about making a new frag rack.  I made the hang on type a few years ago but lately have noticed more people using the magnetic type.  I think it looks cleaner.

Here is my old frag rack


and here is what I'm going to make now.

That looks really good, I might paint it black. Where is a good place to get egg crate. I want some to cover my tank as im not gonna use an enclosed hood.

Chessmanmark:
Home Depot, in the lighting section.

Mark,

If I may make a suggestion.  If you want to make a rack a bit bigger (the one in the link looks like it will hold like 2-3 frags only), make sure you make some little support struts out of the scrap egg crate.  I had my rack on the Maxi-Mod Magnets, which are incredibly strong... but do to the size of the rack it would still pull the magnets apart until I added the little support legs.

I got this one on ebay for $23 with shipping http://cgi.ebay.com/Coral-Reef-Magnetic-Invisible-Frag-Rack-X-Large_W0QQitemZ150342121903QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item230116b9af&_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

If you order from them ask for the stronger magnets they ship with 3 single ones but in a tank with 1/2" glass you need the 3 double magnets they did not charge extra
