    Default Our Macna Donation

    Just wanted to give you a look at the MACNA Raffle donation. This is a Phil's Custom Corner Reef Structure. It fits nicely into a 45 gallon Marineland Cube. It will look cool in any tank. It has 13 recessed holes for Premium Plugs or Frag Station Disks. It is also very open so there are almost no dead spots. Lots of places for fish to swim and corals to grow. It looks cool now. Just imagine it full of coral. MSRP on this structure is $250.00 You can win it in the raffle. It is a one of a kind hand made piece.

    Next year Macna is in Iowa. Should be close enough for all midwesterners.

    Thanks for the compliments on the structure. My worker Phil makes these. I wanted to donate something unique and cool. Lets just say it is something we will never mass produce. I have a sneaking feeling it will be very difficult to ship these. Might actually have to crate them.

    I won't lie, I actually got the idea for these from a thread I saw on one of the forums. There is a place where they are taking huge metal structures close to beaches in tourist areas and making reefs. Instead of liverock structures they mount coral fragments to the structure and let the reef create itself. Now we can not put metal structures in our tanks but these should be no problem. The goal is for an openess you don't get with liverock. Water should flow across the entire structure and in time create a nice grown out reef. Instead of dozens of holes for frag plugs we space the holes to give each colony room to grow.

    Midwest Saltwater had a couple versions of these (one small and one large) at his booth at the MASM conference last month. Very cool. I plan to change things up eventually and add a small one of these to my tank.

    This is the large one from the conference. It took me a few weeks to find the time to get down to Bills and get it back.

    We will be doing our samples a little differently this year. But in all we will still be giving away over $2100 in propagation supplies at the show. But the free samples will be limited so come to our booth early for the best selection and some free stuff.
