Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?


Every  tank we set up at BRS we make a screen net top for.  They will save you a ton of money down the line after you have a few fish jump out of your tank, and you find them on the floor.  About half of reef fish will jump high enough to get out of a tank, and unless you are there to get them back in right away, it will most likely end up in a loss.  Clear netting lets about 99% of light through unlike glass or acrylic.


Clear Netting is is commonly used in several DIY projects like DIY aquarium screen tops. Our clear netting lets about 99% of light though, unlike glass tops which can block up to 30% of light trying to get through.  Screen Frame is available at almost any hardware store, however we do stock screen frame and have kits available as well.


With two sizes available (1/8" and 1/4") we suggest selecting a netting size that your smallest fish will not fit though.

What is the screen mesh made out of?
Question by: Jesse on Jul 19, 2016 2:07:00 PM
Hi Jesse,
The mesh for our screen tops is a thin plastic type that is flexible, and really easy to work with.
Thanks for the question and if you have any others just let us know.

  • Easy to use By David on 8/15/2017

    Used this to make a screen top for my 93 cube. First time making a screen of anything and it turned out great. This stuff is easy to use. I used some left over as a light block for the back edges of my stand I spay painted it flat black and doubled it up. No more refugium light leak.
  • Finished Nicely By Well Pleased on 6/18/2017

    The smaller 1/8 inch seemed to finish tighter and smoother than the 1/4 inch top I made previously. I didn't have to heat shrink it or try to work with it. It just worked perfectly first try. I watched the video on the percentage of light blocked by the smaller holes. I didn't mind the small difference between it and the 1/4 inch version.
  • Works great! By Danielle on 5/31/2017

    I've had this netting covering my 100 gallon saltwater tank for about a year now. It works great!
  • brittle By gnarly aquatics on 4/26/2017

    i love the idea of clear screen material to let more light through. unfortunately it disintegrates very rapidly compared to regular screen material.
