- 1/4" Clear Netting - Bulk Reef Supply
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.
Great stuff! By Patientman on 6/18/2018Patientman would recommend this product to a friendThis is a must to help keep your valuable and cherished pets in the water (where they belong) and not have them jumping out of the tank!
Easy to work with and the how to video on BRS TV takes you through assembly in an easy to understand fashion!
AWESOME By blabay on 10/14/2017blabay would recommend this product to a friendMade a custom top for my 54 corner tank. Worked great. A little hard to stretch out because of the creases from being folded up, but that being said, it turned out great.

Screen net tank covers By GG on 9/30/2016GG would recommend this product to a friendNice product, made 3 covers for reef tanks, all turned out great. Very pleased with the netting. Purchased frame from local hardware store. Thanks to Ryan's video which inspired me to do this project. Can't believe how simple. Should have known about this years ago
Looks much cleaner than the glass panel my rimless comes with By Norico on 7/10/2016Norico would recommend this product to a friendWent to local hardware story to find everything for net top for my rimless. Found everything except for the netting. Installation was simple. Chiller turns on 3 times a day instead of 8 according to my Apex due to evaporation and tank being a bit cooler. I don't have a par meter but I'm sure it's getting more light because my glass top was usually condensing water from evaporation.
Perfect, and not just for marine tanks By Anthony on 7/9/2016Anthony would recommend this product to a friendI bought this to make a DIY screen lid for my freshwater planted tank, as I didn't like the way the typical glass aquarium lid blocked light, but I didn't want to go lidless for fear of fish jumping out. (Hachetfish can go airborne quite easily) . This worked perfectly. BRS handled my order promptly, and I have no complaints.
perfect By greenwizard on 6/30/2016greenwizard would recommend this product to a friendtried egg crate, wrasses jump out like nothing is there. Even though the fish were larger than the holes they somehow jumped through. Got glass cut, glass cracked from heat from the lights. bought this, no more jumpers!
Worked Perfectly By Mad1 on 6/4/2016Mad1 would recommend this product to a friendInstalled on my Red Sea E 260 and couldn't be more happy.
Great product By Witzi on 5/4/2016Witzi would recommend this product to a friendImpossible to find in local stores! Easy to install and create your own screens. No problem with light penetration
Great stuff that saves lives! By D-Nak on 4/26/2016D-Nak would recommend this product to a friendAs long as you don't over-stretch it when installing the screen, it works and looks great! A must have for any tank without a canopy.
Awesome screen By Billy on 4/25/2016Billy would recommend this product to a friendThis was easier to work with than regular screen. It has already saved 2 fish and hasn't stopped the light getting through at all.
How long is the roll?
All items will have the length and width listed in either 3 foot x 7 foot or 6.5 foot by 6.5 foot sections. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
What would you recommend for a JBJ 24 biocube? Since the front is curved its hard to locate a screen that fits that curve
Do you also sell the plastic clips to support the screen rail?
We did just get the clips available for sale! I have included a link below!
Hi, what type of plastic is used for this netting (PP, HDPE, LDPE, etc)?
The netting is made from Polypropylene.
