- DIY Aquarium Screen Top Kits - 1/2" Netting
Great Mesh Top By Chris on 9/1/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendBought the 3ft kit for 29 gallon standard. The netting is strong as well as the aluminum framing. Easy to customize the sizing with minimal tools and effort. Only complaint is the framing wasn't consistently straight so careful bending was needed, but who knows when that could have happened. Also an option to include 4 more corner connectors would be nice. (I know they can be purchased separately)
1/2 inch netting has inconsistant spacing. Just go with 1/4 inch By Fish Fanatic on 3/13/2014Fish Fanatic wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought the 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch netting for comparison. I highly prefer the 1/4 inch. The half inch seems of lower quality. The spacing of my netting varies from 0.21" to 0.54". Most of the squares are near .5 in but every 6 rows or so there is a squished row or two. Some gaps are squares, others are rectangles. The intersection of the horizontal and vertical strands also has a bead of plastic on it.
The 1/4 inch is very consistent and looks very nice. I can't notice any difference in the light blockage between the two so even if you have large fish, I would suggest going with the 1/4 inch.
Nice clean look, easy to assemble By Dr. Mike on 12/7/2013Dr. Mike would recommend this product to a friendI purchased the 1/2 clear screen 6 ft kit for my 190 DSA tank. Since the tank has a center brace I added 4 extra corner pieces to allow making 2 separate screens (one for each side of the tank). The screens fit securely on the inner lip of the tank rim and look very clean. No noticeably affect on the Radion led intensity.
Great addition to Nuvo 38! By Paul on 8/20/2013Paul would recommend this product to a friendRecently added this to my Nuvo 38. Super easy to put together, and it looks nice. If you have smaller fish, I would suggest getting the 1/4" netting. Don't really like the glass top that is on the Nuvo 38, I love this, glad I bought it.
Would recommend to a friend By Moe1brown on 6/23/2013Moe1brown would recommend this product to a friendEasy to install but not sure why they don't sell eight connector pieces instead of four.
Easy to cut and install. Works great. By Bill Carpenter on 5/27/2013Bill Carpenter would recommend this product to a friendVery easy to cut to size. I was done and had the screen top installed after 10 minutes. Works great. Only thing I would suggest is a little plastic tag somewhere on the frame so you can pull the screen off the tank easier.
