I'm sorry to hear that. Puts me at ease with the egg crate supporting rock. Plans on an upgrade?

don't understand this coral looked full and alive yesterday now its gone
all levels look good only thing I can think of my temp droped down to 76 my heater died
already put in a new one and slowly bringing it back up

or maybe the urchin seems he's been hanging around there a while

When I lost power the temp drop screwed my acros. It didn't kill all tissue on some though. Keep things pristine and pray.

Egg crate is a plastic light defuser you can buy at home depot for around $15

you can cut it with a pair of sharp wire cutters sizzors just shatter the plastic

heres a pict of it on the bottom before the sand

also the top it can be done 2 ways with a glass lid the rubber hing was glued to the egg crate or with the egg crate cut out and strapped on with zip ties







This is how to cut it with out it shattering all over



you can also use it for dividers in your tank or coral racks when acclimating your new corals



sorry didn't have a pict of the divider that can be either silicone in or it can be cut to be a tight fit and wedged into place only thing is sometimes they come loose
