$95.00

This fish trap uses a door that can pivot right or left to catch a fish.  The trap itself needs to be secured to wall of your tank with a couple of large cleaning magnets because it weighs about 5.5 lbs.  The handle is to manually close it while you are by your tank baiting the fish to enter, but you can also affix some fishing line and rig it to be able to tug the door shut from a distance.

Box area is 12 long x 8" wide x 12" tall, plus the handle that adds another 2" to the height.

If you are tired of Vortech drivers coming off the wall, here's a way to secure it more permanently.  Screw the acrylic bracket to the wall or cabinetry, then set the driver in place so it rests on the footer. A small piece of velcro on the back of the driver will keep it in place, despite gravity. As of June 2015 the Vortech Driver holders have a new and improved design! The curved lip follows the sleek lines of the driver perfectly, allowing for cleaner lines and a better over all appearance. 

*NOTE: The new design requires you to disassemble the driver unit's 4 screws and slide the power cord through the hole in the bottom of the bracket. This is a very simple step that shouldn't cause you any issues whatsoever. If you're updating to the new Quiet Drives, they come dissassembled anyway, so just be sure to slip the power cord through before you screw it together.

Eheim & APEX Auto-Feeder Chimney

$18.00

The Eheim Autofeeder is great at adding a specific amount of fishfood to your tank once or more per day, but the food often lands on the surface and heads straight to the overflow to go down the drain.  Instead of wasting food, I made the Eheim Chimney.  The acrylic chimney is reef-safe and penetrates the surface water about 1/2" to make sure the food stays in one spot until it has time to soak, which then allows it to drizzle down into your tank for the fish to consume.  Zero waste - every dose of food feeds your fish.

The Peacemaker

$100.00

The Peacemaker is a way to introduce new fish into your tank for a few days prior to release into the reef.  Fish can see each other, they benefit from healthy water, and can eat without competition.  The box has 1/4" holes drilled on all four sides to maintain oxygenation.  Plumbing connections are great hiding spaces for new fish to duck into for shelter if spooked.

Box area is 12" x 6" x 8" with a lid.
