Fry Savers

I am not sure if anybody has seen these before, but I am selling fry savers.

The small measures 8 inches long and 3 3/4 wide
The large measures 12 inches long and 3 3/4 wide

The fry saver hangs on the inside of your aquarium. On one side of it is small bio-sponge filter with an airline attachment, the other side, has 42 CNC machined holes which are 1/16 of an inch in diameter, to allow for circulation. The ABS bracket has 3 steps in it to allow the fry saver to hang on different size aquariums!

Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

The small fry saver is $17 and the large is $21

Send me your zip code and I can quote you a price for shipping!

Thanks for looking!

Here is the magnetic model...

Everything is the same as the bracket design product and size wise.

Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

As you can see from the pictures, the magnets that are attached to the fry saver are sealed in and there is a knob adjustment on the bottom. From my tests I have found that if you extend the knob out alittle more so that the fry saver is at a little bit of an angle, the lid tends to stay on and will not slide off.

The small is $30 the large $35

I will be making these this Friday and Saturday and ship them on Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks for looking!!!

Also, here is a video I shot of the magnetic fry saver..

I am also working on an idea to incorporate an egg tumbler into the fry saver so that the fry will swim out of the egg tumbler and into the fry saver.

Thank you!

I should note that in the video, the fry saver is way below the water line to show that the fry saver is totally suspended by the magnets. For everyday use, the magnets should be right under the plastic rim of the tank.
