So I’m making a 40 gallon frag/grow out tank and I was looking for some racks for it. I was gonna do the egg crate but I remembered I had some acrylic from another project that I was gonna attempt but never ended up doing, never really worked with acrylic this is my second time working with it. Don’t have pictures of cutting the pieces but I made some stencils out of cardboard and cut the acrylic to shape then I used a magnetic frag rack to space the holes

Then used a step drill bit for the holes didn’t make the cleanest holes but didn’t come out to bad. Cut out 1” strips for the legs and used weld on 4 to attach them

The three different platforms are 3” 6” and 9” high. Together it’s 30”x15” and holds about 300 frags depending on the frag plug, each rack is 10”x5”
