Today on BRStv, we have a brand new episode for our series, BRStv Investigates. In this series we explore popular reefing theories, products, methods, and what the manuals are missing, with a focus on putting them to the test! Join us this week as we are going to be taking a look into how much light do typical screen net tops block, and does the size of the openings on the screen make a difference? We test two different sizes of screen that are very common for tops. Screen net tops are great at keeping your fish in the tank while allowing a large majority of the light through the screen, but there has always been a concern of how much light is actually being blocked? So follow along as we investigate today's question, provide a little insight into screen net tops, and help make reefing just a bit more fun and easy.

Top Keep your fish in the tank with minimal impact on light penetration with a do-it-yourself screen net top! To build this, you have two options: 1. Buy the items at a big box hardware store (probably the cheapest option). 2. Buy our DIY Screen Net Top Kit, which has everything you need including the screen frame, corners, spline, spline roller and clear netting. The clear 1/4" netting is really hard to find, but we do have it available on our site: https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/clear-netting.html Once you have all your materials, here's how to build the top: Step 1: Measure the inside lip of the aquarium frame, or rimless tank to get the dimensions for your new top. Step 2: Subtract the corner from the total length and width. Each corner is 3/4", and there's one on each side so you will need to subtract a total of 1 1/2" off each side. Step 3: Measure and mark two pieces of frame. Step 4: Cut the frame. TIP: We use a hacksaw in a series of backward strokes,
In Today's episode we are going to make a custom acrylic box for our aquarium auto top off as well as make a DIY clear screen top for the aquarium. Saltwater aquariums don't do well with glass tops in most cases because the glass gets full of salt creep and they have a tendency to overheat so the screen top is not only a fun project but the results are really worthwhile.

Todays episode is about how you can build your own DIY Screen Top. Screen tops are nice because they keep fish from jumping out, may prevent items from falling in, and block the least amount of light compared to other solutions. Disclaimer© 2020 Bulk Reef Supply. All Rights Reserved.
