    Get tired of playing with putty and rubber bands trying to get that brand new frag on a rock? Accidentally shoot a stream of super glue in your tank? Well check out these magnetic frag plugs that not only seem to be less hassle, you can move the frags around the glass as they grow! 8)

    Thats cool... but what if i dont want all my frags on the back glass??? I like having corals on LR, not just floating in the middle of no where. But still a cool idea.

    All magnets contain iron- do you think that could adversly affect your tank ?

    Heater coils have copper as well as many pumps that are submerged in our reefs for years, but they are encapsulated to prevent the salt from corroding them. Aqua-mags did the same thing when they created the Frag-mags. I ripped one apart and found 3 barriers to the salt water. The magnets are epoxy covered first, then encased in silicone, and then covered with a outer shell of plastic. There is no way these things will ever get touched by the salt water and corrode. They are built like a submarine :)

    That's a great idea especially when adding new frags and trying to figure out their light preferences.
