    Good day to all.

    I saw that some people use something that looks like plastic mesh but only thicker and more ridget to construct platforms in there aquariums to plase the live rock.
    It is normaly white in collour.
    Makes for a nice clean and easy way to stack live rock with enough water flow.
    I was looking for the threat were I saw it but could not find it.

    Can any body please help me, were I can find it (in Pretoria region)and what it is called.

    Regards Nico Ferreira.

    I think you are talking about eggcrate/ lighting diffuser. Check up with electrical shops aswell as Aircon companies.

    You can try light shops but all of the ones I tried gave me a blank stare and did not have a clue what I was talking about.

    Yip we commonly refer to it as egg crate but it's called lighting diffuser. Check the link in my sig, there's a few places there that might have.

    I'm sure Moolis from Pet Stop in Pretoria advertised it a while ago, check in his sponsor forum.
