Very nice and neat rack, but i suggest you put your ballast somewhere else. The Mag ballast is abt 2-2.5KG. Sitting on top of your tank. Cant imagine if it drops into the tank. No matter how secured it is,you can never be too sure of it. The salt spray and evaporation from your tank water will cause the casing to rust in just a few months.

My advise is that you put it somewhere " high and dry". Your Safety and those at home Comes First.

Bro Iceman,

U u list a breakdown of prices for these Al parts? Thanks

Every part is made to measure accordingly to the dimensions of your tank.

Therefore its hard to break down the cost.

In total, bro iceman spend about $100-$120 on all the AL parts.
