I wanted to mount 2x tridents off the 'floor' of my aquarium stand. A few hours in AutoDesk Fusion 360 and a few dozen hours of printing resulted in this. It's not perfect, but it works and seem sturdy enough to be completely safe for the Trident. (of course you have to know how to 3D print or have it professionally printed)

Anyone interested in printing and selling me one of these? :D

If you want it in white or black I'll just charge shipping as I have plenty of filament. If you want it in another color it'll be $35+shipping. PM me with color/shipping preferences and a Venmo ID or some such and I'll get the printer fired up (or is there a way to pay through reef2reef buy/sell/trade?) There are three pieces and they each take ~10 hours, so it it won't be super fast to print/ship out.

This came out great. I welded all 3 pieces together with a 3D pen after it was finished. Came out solid.

Thanks for the post.

Received and mounted mine today! Wanted my mount on the left side, so my trident doesn’t fit perfectly but it works and is up out of the way!

doh! I wish you would of told me I could have mirrored it in AutoDesk fusion 360! Maybe this weekend I'll create a left mounted version for people to print. The reason it's not symmetrical front to back is that I wanted it to not be ably to be 'pushed back/pulled forward' when refilling reagents.

Honesty was a game time decision as where I originally planned to put it didn’t work.

The wall is close behind it so it won’t fall backwards anyways. Once a month to lift it to change reagents isn’t anything to be worried about. If it ever actually bugs me that bad I will buy another as it’s well worth the cost if you don’t have a good place to set the trident.
