Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?


Egg crate can be used for numerous different things.  From frag racks, skimmer stands, to support under your aquascape.  It is always a good idea to have some egg crate on hand.


Black egg crate is the preferred surface for mounting large numbers of coral frags for the following reasons:



  • Securely holds a large quantity of coral frags in the smallest area.

  • All black color is less likely to attract plague algae growth.

  • 100% reef safe

  • Egg crate spacing of 0.55 inches

I want to use this for the top of my aquarium (12X24) but I have a cat that loves to sit on top. He weighs 10 lbs at the most. would it be rigid enough? Thanks.

Great question!
This will not work for a support. Unfortunately it would bend it weight is applied to a long piece. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Can i use this as a lid for my tank? And will it prevent jumping? I ask because I need to make a custom top due to my protein skimmer
Question by: Marlee on Apr 2, 2016 11:52:00 AM
Great question!
You can use egg crate but it will block a ton of light from entering in the tank. We recommend a DIY screen top kit with extra frame and elbow to work around the skimmer. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

  • Great value By Bob on 6/25/2016

    Great price, easy to cut with tin snips
    Multipurpose item
  • Excellent Product By Bill on 6/9/2016

    This is a great product! I use it for making frag racks and tank covers. Easy to cut with side cutters and easy to clean salt creep off with water (I rinse them in the shower). Will definitely always use this in the future instead of the with stuff from Menards or Lowes.




  • Nice product nice price By Renee on 5/14/2016

    Nice and strong. Easy to break apart but be careful not to get flying plastic pieces all over and be careful not to cut yourself..
  • This stuff is surprisingly difficult to find in black By Jared on 5/10/2016

    No surprises here. Typical egg crate but black instead, awesome diy applications!
  • Good product By Jaggray on 5/3/2016

    Used this to hold a filter material in my sump. Cut it to size with a dremil. Plenty left for other jobs.
  • Great eggcrate By Alan on 4/25/2016

    I bought it for my new 90 gallon tank, used it to over the top of my overflow and also as a screen to prevent fish from jumping out.
  • Great Product By Patrick on 4/23/2016

    Not much to say. It's black egg crate, you get a huge 2'x2' section.. it just works! Wish it was a bit cheaper, but it is what it is.

    I paired this with the waterproof Ocean's Wonders magnets to make a DIY frag rack. Cost $25 overall and works great.
  • rack frag By eraser2001 on 2/7/2016

    DYI frag rack excellent option
  • Works Great! By Matthew on 10/25/2015

  • Great Product By Ed on 9/8/2015

    Thanks again BRS!
