Don't know. Too deep to count! Sherman got a piece of that about a month ago. In fact it originally came our of his tank quite a while ago and it is one of the few LPS I can keep. I also have some trumpet coral, frogspawn, and whatever that freak of a lobo that is in the second picture I posted.

Sherman, didn't I tell you I found the Koralia? I was gathering up equipment to set up the 29T frag tank and found the Tunze Nano modded by the Great Dahn Nguyen on my work table, which led me to find the Koralia in the fuge.

I though you weren't using those anyway?

Something I found in another thread...coupon codes:

Fostersmith: 3658566 --$10 off
thatpetplace.com : CH6R7MTR --20% off

Stay tuned as I will be posting a vid of my latest invention between 9 and 10pm.

I saw it in a thread, let me have a look and see if I can find it. I'll be needing some glue soon maybe I can buy a piece or two if you get a case. I think it's around $200 per case with 10 pcs per.

Well it depends if it's for replacements or new stuff

It cost $8 which is about half of a regular bubble counter. Just an Ehrlemeyer 500ml glass flask, rubber stopper, and 3/16" rigid airline. I filled it with 100% vegetable glycerin and a little bit of yellow food color. Underneath is a blue moonlight, courtesy of Sherman.

Ooops. Forgot about the mount. That was about $10...typical DIY right? Always over budget!

Some systems have issues with it...others don't. I am having a huge hair algae problem in my propagation system that's why I want the acrylic. It's the only place in my tank that it grows and I've lost a nice frag or two because of it.

If it's not causing a problem, I wouldn't worry about it.

You could use perforated PVC orFilter Grating. I found perforated PVC HERE. I use it on my media baskets.

The filter grating may be a good answer. The PVC is way too pricey.
