DIY Aquarium Screen Top Kits - 14" Netting

  • Works Great By Russell on 11/22/2014

    Very happy with the quality, simplicity, and look of this DIY screen top. The mesh does not cause any noticeable shadowing which I was very happy to find.

    Only small nit is that the straight pieces are the dimensions that are listed so when you put in the angle, the completed screen will be 1-1.5" longer than shown. The material is very easy to miter to the correct length, but you still have to go through the effort.

    Also happy that you have plenty of extra mesh in case you mess up the first time or decide to change tanks in the future I can re-use.
  • Great look. Doesn't hurt light shimmer. By Randall on 11/13/2014

    Measure twice. Cut once. The netting is rigid enough that little effort was needed to assemble without any sag. Nice look with good light pass though. Jump Nemo. Jump.
  • Rails are bowed By Apolloremy on 8/23/2014

    Got the 48" kit and the rails are completely bowed in the middle out of the shipping box from BRS. When assembled there is a huge gap where fish can jump out.
  • Just what I needed By Casey on 6/21/2014

    This kit has saved my new Blue spot Jawfish

    I actually tried tracking down the materials at my local Home Depot and could not find netting that I liked. This kit ended up being a few bucks more but it was well worth it to have all the materials in one kit.

    The top is easy enough to assemble. Just make sure you are careful when cutting the frame with a hack saw. I bent it just a tiny bit and has trouble putting the corner pieces on. A quick fix was achieved by flaring the opening edges a little and then smoothing them back down after attaching the corners.

    The finished product looks great and doesn't block out any light. The 1/4 screen size is too small to let any future purchases going carpet surfing.
  • 5 Ft DIY 1⁄4" Screen Top  By kimberly on 5/18/2014

    The merchandise arrived quickly. Easy to assemble. Enough material arrived where I can replace the top twice. I would byt again. Only thing tool provided is cheap and awkward to use. Also corner prices must be installed correctly because too difficult to change.
  • Stops jumping clowns! By Shawna on 5/1/2014

    My two clowns are a bit jumpy, and enjoy making me panic when I hear them splashing about. This netting kit was easy to put together, even in a shape that would go around the equipment in the back of my tank. Thanks for making a nice all in one kit! I love that I didn't have to run all over the hardware store looking like an idiot trying to find exactly what I needed.
  • Perfect By evilc66 on 3/24/2014

    While there isn't any real innovation with the product, it's executed well, and at the right price. The finished product looks good, and really isn't that hard to assemble. If you've ever replaced the screens on windows before, it makes it even easier. It's also really nice that they include everything you need to get it assembled (with the exception of a saw to cut it to length).
  • Fun project everything you need included By surfishjoe on 2/12/2014

    I shopped around and the kit from BRS was better quality and less hassle than trying to piece something locally. Yes i probably could have saved a few bucks but the end result is well worth it. I have a great looking top that was easy to put together with no surprises. One tip- take your time cutting the frame with a hacksaw as the frame is easy to damage. Thanks BRS!
  • Good product. By Axizo2 on 1/21/2014

    If you use the proper tools and follow directions this DIY screen should work just fine. I used You tube videos and was able to put it together fairly quickly. Fits well as a screen and does not effect light shimmer at all.
  • Great finish for a rimless tank By Richard on 1/20/2014

    I used this for my Deep Blue 60 cube and it came out great. Don't try to make the screen to tight or it will twist the frame. I made it just smaller than the inside dimensions of the glass and it sits inside so perfectly you can't even tell is there.
