    I was browsing my LFS the other day and noticed an am zing contraption holding a few ORA frags. Not your standard acrylic rack but a vertical, branching system to maximize space and appeal to the eye. The price tag was $26 and my wife bought it for my on the spot!

    My first surprise was that it came in this little pouch, which I thought was neat and different:

    Here is a layout of the parts included. Instruction book, 10 frag branches, the acrylic rod, and two suction cups. I know I know I hate suction cups too, but I have magnents on order.

    And finally, inside my tank filled with frags.

    This cool little rack can be place easily in a corner, back wall, or pretty much any where you have space. The design is simple yet effective, and personally I think it is a revolutionary way to acclimate acros to light, stepping them up as needed (If you dont have 70 frags and a fear of commitment to the placement)

    I hope you enjoyed this new product, but be warned: Thrive is a company that focuses on local retailers and not online sales, so if you want one of they neat additions, ask your LFS!

    Probably in an effort to keep costs down. I'll post my magnetic retrofit next week.
