Get a Lee's speciman container and drill holes in it. That is what I used to use to hold frags. You can hang it on the tank lip as well.

I did that also. works well.

You can also find "critter keeps" at most pet stores and LFS.

nice, but a bit pricey. Should do the trick though.

Good find.

I think it would be cheaper for a specimen container.. and drill holes i like that idea. Also you can use any cheap rubbermaid food container also, use a shallow one so you can put netting on the top of the container to hold the frags to rubble or rock to attach.

i use plastic disposable shot glasses. drill a couple of holes in them and fill with rock rubble. then drop one or two frags per shot glass. works great to keep them seperate for trading or selling. for mushrooms i use a plastic silo cup cut down to about 1.5 inches.

hopes this helps
