Small cleanable frag shelf?

Hi, need help again:
I have some sps frags in the tank with a lot of bryosis (Mg didn't help), it would be convenient to have them on cleanable frag shelf, movable for a glass cleaning (2x a week). Maybe disposable?

What I tried:
- eggcrate shelf - becomes unsightly very soon, difficult to clean;
- eggcrate shelf, zip-tied to MagFloat - the same, only easier movable;
- magnet mounts - tank is accessible from 3 sides, light touch from outside - and frags are dropped on the bottom, regularly;
- soap dishes with suction caps - disposable, but the flow is severely restricted, and not so easy movable.

I know, that the tank better to be cleaner, but it's filter-feeders tank.

Any ideas?

I used fiberglass window screen to prop zoas and xenia on. just zip it to a piece of eggcrate and then cut the frag you want out of it when your ready. disposable, safe and effective for encrusting softies..

PLUS it keeps the eggcrate from growing algae.

My eggcrate racks always seem to get coralline covered before they get ugly with algae though....I consider eggcrate racks disposable after some time too.
