I think I just put the pieces together. At the LFS, one of the frogspawns looked pale. I thought it was a color morph lol.

Here are the frogspawns (plus the 2 acros and digi). The frogspawn on the left is bright and pale, while the one on the right is rich.

That second frogspawn looks bleached - I had one exactly like that, with blue tips and white polyps.
I thought it looked beautiful bleached but under my lighting it eventually went back to the beige and green colouring. If I’m honest, I wish we could keep a blue frogspawn, they really are beautiful. Actually, you can see the reviving frogspawn in the top left of this FTS (my old 3’x2’x2’ tank).

I had to find a solution for hanging my powerhead controllers because every time, I would have to bury my hand into the crypt to search for and unplug them.

I considered buying an inexpensive plastic soap/sponge holder, but I used cheaper plastic beer cups instead.

Super ratchet!

If you agree to take a few measurements and really good photos afterwards (so I can post them as products after), I'll design & print you some. You're on shipping too. ;D

But you've kinda found the perfect solution.

Thank you for this offer! I think the Beer Pong idea will work fabulously for me, but maybe one day you can create an invention for me to promote lol. :)



New FTS! I noticed I hadn’t taken one in a while!

I will fix this! I actually tilted it today because I had to glue a coral, but I forgot to reposition it. Thank you for letting me know!
