eggcrate

Someone asked this before but I don't think anyone answered. What are the eggcrates for in the sump. I am probably going to make something similar to this and I was wondering what they are for.

Well, I'm truly surprised noone else chimed in with an answer to your question DP, Sorry I didnt get an answer to you sooner, but I try to avoid posting in, or signing in, or even visiting this forum much anymore. Not that it isn't a great forum, but I was told by a few of the moderators I was no longer welcome here.

Anyways, the egg crate was used in the inlet/skimmer section to create a shelf to support the weight of the skimmer pump (a modification I found to be a mute point). The other sections of Eggcrate on either side of the middle (refugium) section were intended to keep both the macro algae, and any livestock being housed in the fuge, from entering the adjacent sections. Ive since made a second sump which incorperates a few new modifications to this design. That sump was used with my wifes 29 gallon mini reef. I'm now working on a third sump which also incorperates several new ideas.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

That is absolutely stunning Steve.

What's the green thing at the bottom of the first picture? And do you have any recent full tank shots?
