Recently fragged up a few of your corals? Sandbed starting to look like a container of frag plugs exploded across it? Need a method to adopt frags to different lighting levels by depth within your tank?
Solving any and all of these issues can be easily accomplished witha simple DIY frag rack.
Old Mag-Float or other magnetic glass cleaner (or a brand new one if you want);
A piece of eggcrate (light diffuser grid) - available at your local hardware store;
Some Superglue gel - I buy mine in the three packs from the Dollar Store;
1. Cut or break your eggcrate to the desired size; I use a pair of pliers to break out sections till its the size I want, but know others that use side-cutters or dremmels. This will be determined by how many frags you plan on placing in the rack, as well as the size of the magnetic glass cleaner.
2. Once you have the piece of eggcrate cut to size, center it on the magnet, and mark the positions at which it contacts the magfloat.
3. Cover the marks with a generous layer of Superglue gel, and then place the eggcrate into the glue.
4. Hold firmly in place until the glue is dry or dip in water to speed up the hardening process.
5. Once the glue it dry, place it in your tank and fill with frags.
