    You can spraypaont the white stuff with Krylon fusion. I just made a carbon reactor and sprayed it black with krylon and it works sweet. It is in the sump of my 125.

    I have never seen any locally.  I bought mine from a place out in California but now I see Bulk reef supply carrying some smaller sizes.

    I thought about spray paint but I am not sure about submerging it forever and/or how long it will last.

    I did see bulk reef had a smaller size and might be my best option.

    My DIY overflow has been painted with Fusion and submerged since the first of March - no problems as of yet!

    Try Regal Plastics, they have it for around $12 a sheet.

    OK, no luck locally.... I have tried everywhere and I don't really need a case and that is what I have to buy. Anyone else looking for black egg crate?

    We wanted black to match our tanks but found silver shiny silver like reflector silver which is perfect for lights at Home Depot in Urbandale. Paid about $20 for a sheet that had a broken edge (didn't matter we have to trim anyway) and it looks really nice!
