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

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!

This can be cut with a small saw or even small wire cutters on each connecting joint. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

  • 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

    Works Great. Used it to lift my skimmer. Easy to cut and always handy to have around!
  • Great Product By Ed on 9/8/2015

    I think this product looks great in the tank and serves its purpose for sure. I haven't had any issues yet.
    Thanks again BRS!
  • Excellent By Ron Cento on 6/19/2015

    Perfect for frag tanks. Excellent product.
  • Keep this on Hand! By Terri on 5/27/2015

    As others have said, this black Egg Crate is very useful, etc...! I keep at least 1 2'x2' square always on hand! Try it, you'll like it!!
  • So useful! By Alex on 5/15/2015

    I have bought this stuff a couple times now and have found so many uses, not just frag racks.

    I have used it for Qt separators, covers for qt tank, overflow covers, drying racks for my fish area, and much more.

    The black is also really nice, it blends in nicely too. I also like how sturdy it is.

    Great product, buy some you will wish you had more because of all the uses you will find for it!
  • Good quality By Scott on 5/14/2015

    Exactly what I was looking for. Easy to cut and good quality.
  • Works the way I want it By Anthony on 1/29/2015

    Sadly this is a bit more costly than the white stuff you can get at your local hardware shop BUT who wants white? The black looks much slicker in most circumstances. The packaging was a bit overboard BUT the item was not damaged when it arrived.
  • it was perfect! By joamg25 on 1/4/2015

    Quick shipping and exactly what I needed.
    Thank you
  • Better than white By MechEngineer on 5/19/2014

    Great for frag racks. Black keeps the algae growth down plus looks nicer.
