Hey everyone just got this frag house built for the 20 gal long frag tank i am doing. Would like opinions on it and suggestions will have a live rock scape on the left side of the tank for bioload few fish and cuc. Was trying to build tiers to help with coral placement for lighting and flow as well as a good flow system for no dead spots throughout the frag rack. Suggestions for substrate if any or power head would be awesome. Or even suggestions for the rack i have plenty of egg crate and risers to do whatevers needed just trying to get the best arrangement for it as possible. Sanded all edges of egg crate for live stock purposes and also for no cut edges that could possibly do damage.

looks cool. is the PVC secured to the egg crate somehow?
Gel super glue lol coats on coats on coats lol it worked though and is a solid one piece assembly now. Was trying to think of how else to secure it with keeping its nice clean edges. Gel super glue dries fast and was able to also position each part in the place I wanted before it tacked down.

yeah as long as its glued together it'll stay secure under the strain from a powerhead. are you looking for an affordable powerhead, or something dc/adjustable?

if affordable is the focus, can't go wrong with a Tunze Turbelle AC
