So this should be a fun one! Have you ever thought about how you could use a hamster ball for reefing? Don't lie, no you haven't! Well maybe a few of you have because these two members did!

Hamster Ball Use #1: A chamber to keep chaeto in! Adam Doty or @DozyDotes01 created the chaeto ball! HA! I can see how useful it would be to keep the chaeto all in place, to restrict growing out of control and to "roll around" in the sump or fuge so that all the algae is getting light! What do you think?

Hamster Ball Use #2: A cheap fish acclimation box...err....ball! This idea comes to us via member @Outlaw

I think these are pretty genius myself but I would like to hear what you think. Maybe you have an idea as well?

You could open the lid, turn it upside down, and use it to protect certain corals within the ball. Imagine covering this bad boy in a mesh net and using it as a kreisel tank because it’s already circular?? Or as a nem box? The possibilities...
BOOM! That's what I'm talking about. Would have to make sure it would stay in place but good thinking!

No I haven't. But, I would like a hamster to charge my phone
