 Hi all, I think it's called egg create. Anyway I'm looking for a piece of this to cut down and make into a box so I can raise my skimmer thus increasing the water volume in my sump.  Do you think this would be a good way of achieving this or do you have any other suggestions that might help. Also if it is egg create that I need where can I find it for sale as I've not seen any in LFS.

Cheers Steve.

Hi Steve
Best place I found is here http://www.aac-online.co.uk/
You will need to call them as they don't always have it on the site.

Or you could get a platform, bit pricey

I'll get back to you when I get chance,  basically it's just the footprint of the Deltec 1455. Just wide enough for it to sit on. Incidentally it went mental the other day frothing and over flowing.  Something happened it didn't like, it's back to normal now so alls good.
