    Now I'm going to build a media rack for the center chamber of the bio cube 14. I will post pics as I go.

    Yeah but I just made one in 5 mins and about $10 compared to ordering waiting for shipping and $42. So quick that I didn't take pics of the build but I will post one up of the final build. Now I just need some filter floss, cheato, purigen and an under water light.

    What you need.

    I used corrugated plastic(cheaper than lexan and its not going to be seen.)
    Egg crate
    Some silicone
    Superglue
    Ruler
    Razor blade(caution sharp)
    And a tape measure.

    That looks great. I ordered one from intank for my Solana tank and it is very nice but was pricy. Was kicking my self while I was ordering it, knowing that I could make something just as effective. Time has been an issue though.

    Yeah I didn't want to spend that much and regret it either. I have so much stuff left over too. I'm thinking about building some more and trying them on eBay.

    Should I seal up the ends? I don't know if the corrugated holes would trap nitrates.
