- Black Egg Crate for Aquariums 2' x 2' Square
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
MUST need for frag tank By Bryan on 1/4/2020Bryan would recommend this product to a friendThe black egg crate is much more aesthetically pleasing than your typical white egg crates.
I simply used the BRS Bone Cutter to snip this to an adequate size that I need. Very easy to do, no need any saws or drills to cut.

Good stuff, good price By Eric on 8/21/2018Eric would recommend this product to a friendWorks well and cheaper than I can find it anywhere else, and it's in black. I like that it's a large (2 x 2') square that I can easily cut to shape as needed.
Way better than the white stuff By Tom on 11/25/2017Tom would recommend this product to a friendI believe this stuff gives a better appearance than the white egg crate you get from the hardware store.
Great product By Thomas on 4/8/2017Thomas would recommend this product to a friendI used this to cover a skimmer box. Easy to cut with cutting pliers. It's visible from the outside so having this product in black is a great option.
great, very useful By augiedog on 3/27/2017augiedog would recommend this product to a friendI used this item when I was setting up my reef tank. Keeps the dry rock from scratching the glass. I really like it and it is easy to cut to size and place where you want it. Very satisfied with the shipment packaging and how fast it arrived.

Excellent Product By Bill on 6/9/2016Bill would recommend this product to a friendThis 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 5/14/2016Renee would recommend this product to a friendNice 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 5/10/2016Jared would recommend this product to a friendNo surprises here. Typical egg crate but black instead, awesome diy applications!
Good product By Jaggray on 5/3/2016Jaggray would recommend this product to a friendUsed this to hold a filter material in my sump. Cut it to size with a dremil. Plenty left for other jobs.
Is it 12"in. By 12"in.
They are 2 feet x 2 feet, so it is 24" x 24"
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.
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.
What is the dimension of each square? Thanks
The space between the square is 1/2" the square themselves are slightly larger than 5/8" 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
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!
Can the egg crate be cut to a smaller dimension?
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!
How thick is it?
The egg crate is 1/4" thick. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What material are these made of acrylic or styrene?
These will be a styrene egg crate. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
