Product Questions

Hello,

I have a Kessel AP700 and the mounting arms hang over the frame of the aquarium. Can I still use a screen top on this tank? How would that work?

Thank you,
FB
Question by: FIshbulb on Jul 16, 2016 4:13:00 PM
Thanks for the question! When using mounting arms you may have to cut the screen top just short enough to clear the bracket that clamps onto the tank. Usually that distance is pretty small, and some people will even modify the screen corners to have their top go physically around the mounting arms too.

My tank is 72" X 28", how wide is the netting that you sell, i don't see any problem with the length. My tank is rimmed and has a center brace, so i will be making 2 screen sections. Just trying to get as much info as possible , hoping to get everything i need in one purchase.
Question by: John on Jul 31, 2016 10:33:00 AM
Hi John,
The actual piece of screen netting we include with the 6' kit is a 6.5-foot square piece of netting. that will most likely leave you with quite a bit extra.

Full Details

Traditional aquarium will come with a plastic trim to reinforce the glass on the top and bottom rim. Smaller tanks under 3 feet and under traditionally do not have any center braces even if their is trim on the tank which keeps things pretty simple which selecting a screen top.

Longer tanks like 4 foot to 6 foot tanks the trim will divide the tank up into sections with the bracing where rimless tanks will not have any bracing. If you have a rimless tank 4 feet or over without any center braces you will want to get a Screen Top Net Kit for Rimless tanks of the appropriate length. If your aquarium has trim with bracing dividing the tank up into multiple sections you will want to get a kit for Rimmed tanks which will include more screen frame corners and frame than a rimless kit would.

 

Rimmed Kits: (no more needing to purchase extra frame and corners)

Rimmed kits come with more shorter sections of screen frame, and corners that traditional aquariums with trim and bracing will require. Rimmed kits will allow you to make multiple screen netting tops if your tank requires multiple.

2' Rimmed kits can make one 2' x 2' net tops

3' Rimmed kits can make one 3' x 3' net tops

4' Rimmed kits can make two 3' x 3' net tops

5' Rimmed kits can make two 4' x 4' net tops

6' Rimmed kits can make three 2' x 2' net tops

 

Each kit includes frame sections, screen corners, roll of 1/4" netting, spline roller and spline.
