So I decided that since these cups seal pretty well, and they're readily available, I'd make a stand to hold up frag plugs "neatly" if I decided to use these for trading/selling frags. It's a lot easier (for me) than using baggies and it holds up the frag and keeps it from bouncing around the sides of the container.

My first design had 4 holes for frags and the "legs" were in an "X" pattern. I found out rather quickly that the design sucked if you only put in 1 frag, as the other side of the stand would float up, or be pushed up by the weight of the single frag. So on to version 2.0 in which I added another hole for a frag plug in the middle of the stand (specifically for single frags) and move the legs so they're curved with the side of the stand. This serves two purposes, 1, it move the legs so I could add the single hole for the frag in the center, and 2, with the legs on the very edges, it's less likely to "fall over" as any weight will be on the leg.

Anyway, It's not like it's some masterpiece, but it works for me.

I have seen similar things in the past, and always felt this is a really smart and helpful tool to have when going to a trade show/frag swap because you have a nice little carrier to slot them into!

Nice design, looking forward to seeing how you like it on use, and whether you alter some things. Either way very clever for the hobby and what us hobbyists need!

Thanks!

So far they're working out well. The first design worked well if you had more than 1 frag, this design seems to work well regardless. So far so good!

If you can make them for cheap, I would be interested in a few
They're not expensive to make (less than a bottle of Coke, well, here anyway.....haha), hit me up via PM and we'll see if we can work something out.

Do you think that live rock is more beneficial in sump than it is in the main display tank?
