Plastic egg crate

I've only seen really thin egg crate for sale. Like 1/4" thick I think is the most common. This seems way too thin if you want to build up several inches for terraces.

Anyone have a source for some that's more like 1" thick? Or something like egg crate that's that thick?

I got my black egg crate from bulkreefsupply.com. I can't really remember size, but it's more than sturdy enough for hardscape of any type.

It super glues so you could build taller structures by sandwiching vertical pieces between horizontal ones. Or make 'boxes' with it and fill with gravel.

Also look into drainage cells. Already black if you have a dark substrate. I think these are about 2" thick they have thinner as well

I tried making a new post and got this error message but still receiving the following error messages

PHP User Warning: mysql_connect(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in ..../for_sale.php on line 33

PHP User Warning: mysql_connect(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in ..../for_sale.php on line 33
php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known

The issues are still going on. You guy need to tell the programmers in the IT department. The higher level guys.

I do not know how other people are able to post but I'm not.

Does the website connect you to different servers depending on your location?

jaz419, where are you connecting from if you don't mind my asking? like US/Canada/Japan,etc..?

For the PHP errors you are getting, this is already documented in the following thread:

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/1...l#post11083329

The administrators are looking into this.
