    Frag swap coral carrier, Oct 5, 2017
  1. Ryan@ShelteredReef

    Threw together a tiered frag/coral carrier that fits in a 5 gallon bucket for the upcoming #CTARS fragtoberfest and figured I'd share a few pics as well as a little tutorial.
    First I cut some egg crate down to 16x9" pieces

    Next I used a Dremmel to cut out the + at each corner

    The hole size is the exact diameter to fit a length of 3/4 PVC so I used some scrap to test fit. I trimmed the corner on the bottom shelf so it could sit lower in the bucket.

    This rack leaves plenty of room on either side for a heater and circulation pump

    A few members have expressed interest in carpooling to the show on Sunday June 25th. We have enough people now that we don't fit in a car. If we get a few more interested we can charter a van or small bus for a reasonable price. The more people who want to go the cheaper the price will be. Please reply here if you would be interested in joining us so we can gauge interest before booking a van. We need to know ASAP so we can book the ride. CTARS members only pls.

    Hey everyone! Now that the dust has settled from Fragtoberfest, it's time to get back into the swing of things. We will be hosting a Fragging Demo and Josh from Blue View Aquatics will be doing the demonstration for us. All CTARS members will leave the meeting with at least one coral. The meeting will take place on November 27th at 5pm at the Lutz Children's Museum in Manchester CT. This is going to be a lot of fun and informative as well. Hope y'all can make it! Happy fragging!
