are we talking about the white stuff with 1/2inch squares or what. I was wondering how if I took my glass off for ph problems how i would keep yellow goby in tank now I think I know just got to get right stuff.

I which you guys would put all the new points like this and the ones about play sand, and how to test sand with vinagar in one big post. I was at my sisters and could barly see lights cleaned glass and put them back.

Told her about the sand and base rock seeding with LR she went to same store as me they didnt help with any of this stuff taniks again for this site.

You can also use the eggcrate to close off the back of your canopy. This leaves the top of the water totally open will still keeping the fish in the tank.

No you do not have to raise your lights.

NJDevilsWinCup,
This works for flouresceant lighting, it does not work with MH. The lights don't actually become more powerful, the eggcrate focuses the light and basically makes more of the light enter the tank, rather than reflect off the surface of the water.

Where did you buy your egg crate? if it was at lowes or someplace like that can you give me a part #? And to think I just went and bought glass tops cause the plastic ones look like trash.

Dang I don't have a hd close, I hate lowes but I guess I'll have to try them. What sizedoes it come? and how big are the openings? I mean how big do i need to get cause I'm sure it comes in different openings.

The ones at Home depot came in 2x4 size. I haven't measured the opening size yet.
