    Yeah i saw it too, but thought that there would be ready assembled ones? See thing is...i worked with pvc weld over the weekend and lets just say i still have the burn marks to prove. Then tried super glue last night and now the tip of my fingers feels like sandpaper.. (in my case i will put that into good use....*grin*) So yeah DIY is not for me....unless you offering to build one?

    @Zandy Not if you wear latex gloves but you don't need to wear them anyway if you work neatly.;)

    Ok here is a thought, will a guppy breeding tank (one of those plastic ones (perspex) that float with a magnet glued onto it and holes drilled bigger work, that way i can protect the frags also from now being in too much of a flow???:p

    Hi there, we do frag racks, they are very nice clear acrylic, the only problem is there only hold 12 frags and they are blindingly expensive @R480.00 eek :-(
    I guess the clear acrylic doesn't come cheap ?
