I'm starting a 24 x 18 x 24 tank and since the lightweight white false bottom (ie from Josh's, or other vendors) seems to no longer be available, I was looking for a low weight alternative. I hand mist and haven't used a drain in previous builds, even in "rainy season" I don't tend to have a large amount of water in the bottom, though I do leave an option for siphoning if needed.

What is mantala?
