How are you supposed to lift the front for feeding and that sort of thing? Do you have to cut it somehow?

Thanks for pointing out the eggcrate pic link oversight earlier in the thread, and, the tank w/eggcrate pics.

Good question hypo, guess there is always a compromise in these things.

Also, somebody asked about a reflector earlier in the thread. Maybe a metal fab shop could help you out if you wanted your own reflector made. A freind of mine told me how wiil cut metal etc to spec and then they even polish it according to needs. - just a thought.

8O LOL i guess you could do that centurion. Hehe. However i have to say that the live black worms that i feed my fish stick to my fingers so it could get a little messy and they might just end up plastered all over the eggcrate.
Point taken in general...and funny too.

you could also cut 2 pieces and have a front/back or left/right so that you could remove one piece to feed. i considered 2 panels: a 3/4 back and 1/4 front, so i could remove the front to feed, water change, etc. if i remember ill snap a pic of one of my tanks that uses eggcrate. i have the coralife aqualight on the legs, so it stands above the top and it wasnt neccessary to use two parts.

I simply raise the egg crate off the top of my tank and place it to the side during feeding, in tank maintenance, etc... Its easy to remove and place back.
