    Hi, I'm in the process of designing/building my new 1100l tank and sump. Where can one buy Eggcrate from for use in the sump?

    Ns. I'll start posting some pictures here very soon.

    You can phone lighting places and ask for "lighting diffuser".

    Sean, The company is called Radbro - 031 3011009. Not as cheap as JHB though, the last time I bought is was R130.00 a sheet I think, that was over a year ago.

    Yep, thats the size. I have 2 extra sheets available, there is one catch though. I live in the middle of nowhere(Kimberley) and shipping them with a courier will add R95 to the cost, and they are kind of difficult to package :)

    Most light places I phoned did not know what I were looking for or simply told me that you don't get that anymore.
