I was wondering if anyone could help or point me in the right direction. I have a waterbox silver frag 28.2 AIO that I bought used. The tank is missing the 2 acrylic plates that go in the rear chamber on each a side that hold the 2.75 filter sock. I would absolutely love to run a sock or a sock cup. I'm running pads cut for the best fit but they suck down within 24hrs.

I really need to figure something out.

The only thing I ran across are the media trays that require me to cut the waterbox ledges out on each side. I would rather not cut them out if possible.
Thanks

This should work, I use one on my 40.2. It's smaller than the one made for my tank and the floss hangs over the edges, but I have no issues. When I got it they didn't have one designed for my tank.

I think I found one made for my tank by that company but I read I'm required to cut the stock end plates off my tank to be able to install the intank part.

Did you have to cut anything on yours? BTW thanks for the reply!

That one is deeper. The one I have is 2 7/8", smaller than my chamber so I didn't need to take the sock braces off to use it. They also have one for the Cube 7, which is even smaller.

What are the dimensions of your chamber? If the holder is smaller then you shouldn't need to take the braces off to use it.

I found socks to be pain, so I switched to the inTank holder and baskets. All the sock brackets are removed from my tank.

Oh i see, I like that idea!
I think it's 3 1/4 x 4 1/2. I'm going to confirm that when i get home.

Did you go with the multi stage holder or the single filter floss tray?

Have you looked into 3D printed custom media tray or filter cup? If you haven’t, I would contact @chemisfun11.

My tank has two overflows. One side has the floss tray while the other has the three shelf basket. The side with the tray has my homemade ATS in it.
