But that may lose integrity
Love the idea! These holes are way bigger than the AquaBlox already. I’ll be using three points of contact for each rock zip tied to the crates, if needed I will also use some Emarco400 to bond any pieces that need it…

Might help with any aggression between the larger fish if they can escape then

Like an underwater New York!
Yes for sure!! I laughed out loud when I read that!! That’s exactly what it looks like. :)

The tank is deep so I’m working on getting the rockwork stable and up into the viewing area with those crates!

They are new plastic, not recycled, have used them for skimmer platforms/stands in past systems without any problems… many people use their new plastic containers to hold their water for water changes too… fingers crossed but pretty sure they will work perfectly… anyone ever have any problems with them??
I've seen the same as well (skimmer stands, QT tanks, etc.), but wasn't sure if most are made from the same type of plastic or if there is a wide variety. I typically see/use polyethylene tanks for water storage.

I'm learning that the recycled plastics are the ones to watch out for... ;)

Thinking of BB because of the depth and the flow required to house SPS. Still open for options but will run it and see how it goes before adding any type of sand. I have run sand in a hidden box for the wrasses to sleep in over the years... that I will do...

Larger size like calcium reactor media should be fine for flow
