Why does BRS recommend this?

We make a screen top for every tank we set-up at BRS! Clear netting lets about 99% of light through unlike glass or acrylic all the while keeping your beloved fish and critters in.

Build a screen top for your aquarium on your own with one of our DIY Kits. If you have a rimless tank just simply select the length of your tank for the properly sized screen netting kit.

Available for the following tank sizes:

  • 2 Foot Rimless
  • 3 Foot Rimless
  • 4 Foot Rimless
  • 5 Foot Rimless
  • 6 Foot Rimless

 

Rimless tanks are becoming more and more common and we all know why, they simply just look better. They do require a full-sized net top to span the full length of the aquarium, keeping your fish in the tank. Many people will make their own plastic brackets, magnets, or come up with their own DIY way to suspend the top just inside of the glass of the tank for the best overall look. Innovative Marine has their Auqa Gadget Screen Top Suspension Clips, which work very well with rimless tanks making suspending the top super easy.

 

Rimless Kits:

Rimless kits come with full-length frame sections to span the total length of the tank to create a single screen top. Only 4 corners are needed to complete a rimless screen net top kit.

Product Questions

Would you recommend the 3' for a Red Sea Reefer 250?
Question by: Adam Casineau on Jan 13, 2017, 10:44 AM
Great question! I would recommend the 3' DIY Kit for that tank, as that screen will be 36" and the tank length is 35.5". That leaves you with a bit of room to work with for a perfect fit! :-)
Answer by: Randy on Jan 13, 2017, 11:07 AM
Would this work for a rimless bowfront tank?
Question by: Cerissa Blair on Apr 25, 2016, 11:12 PM
Great question!
These are not designed to work with Bowfront aquariums.
Answer by: Connor on Apr 26, 2016, 2:36 PM
Is there an option available for a biocube? I have a Radion XR30W I'm going to run on my BC 29 but need to find a clean way to keep it covered since I won't run the stock good.
Question by: Adam on Jan 14, 2016, 12:14 PM
Great question, There is not currently an option for rounded corner tanks unfortunately. The elbows on the kit are full right angles and will force the screen to fit well outside of the aquarium or well inside of the aquarium. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor on Jan 14, 2016, 4:52 PM
I am trying to decide between the 1/4" and the 1/8" tops. Do they effect PAR and if so is there a difference between the two? In simpler terms would the 1/8" potentially block more light.
Question by: Jason on Jan 27, 2016, 10:02 AM
Hey there!
Overall the difference is negligible between par or blocking light as the netting is so thin. In most cases we use the 1/4" netting however many applications may have smaller fish. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor on Feb 3, 2016, 5:36 PM
How is the top held in place on rimless tanks? Does it rest on top of the rim, is it pressure fit inside the tank or are there clips for it to rest on?
Question by: Alden on Mar 20, 2016, 11:01 AM
Great question!
You can use aquarium lid clips on a rimless tank (listed below) For the rimmed tanks you can simply place the frame on the rim of the tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Answer by: Connor on Mar 21, 2016, 5:37 PM
1/8 or 1/4 is that the tickness of the screen or the size of the opening in the screen? Also what's the size of those corners? I have quite a few tight corners to work with. Thanks!
Question by: Larry on Jan 19, 2016, 1:54 PM
Great question!
The 1/8 and 1/4 is the hole size between the screen netting. The corners will fit into the frame and on the ends will increase the size 1" (the area of the corner which is not inserted into the frame) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor on Jan 27, 2016, 2:52 PM
What size would you recommend for a 40 x 30 rimless tank?
Question by: Quang on May 11, 2017, 9:21 AM
Hey there,
Normally you'll want to choose the frame in which the both the longer and shorter length frame sections will be at least as long as your tank dimensions. The 4ft kit should be fine for your needs as the longer frame sections are 4ft, and the shorter lengths are 3ft, both of which will give you more than enough for your dimensions.

Hope this helps!
Answer by: Zack on May 14, 2017, 3:47 PM
Would it be possible to fabricate a top with both inside and outside corners? I'd like to be able to make "cutouts" around my kessil mounts. As my tank is euro braced and that is where the Kessil mounts are attached, to the bracing. Otherwise I'd have to make the cover 3" or so smaller in width to work. Which isn't ideal. Thanks
Question by: Christopher Baldwin on Feb 2, 2016, 6:54 PM
Great question!
Buy purchasing extra elbows you can make 90 degree cut outs! I have included a link to our separate elbows below.

Answer by: Connor on Feb 24, 2016, 5:01 PM
I have a 265 gallon 7' x 2' tank with three openings. Would I need three of the 3' screens?
Question by: Talon on Jun 23, 2016, 8:37 AM
Correct, if your screen openings are wider than 2x2 you will need the 3x3 tops. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor on Jun 29, 2016, 4:59 PM
Would this work on the Red Sea Reefer 170?
Question by: Tommy on Jan 10, 2017, 12:24 PM
Great question! These screens will absolutely work with your Reefer 170. They are DIY, in which case you will have to build the screen to your specific dimensions. Since the Reefer 170 is 24.5" long, I would recommend the 3ft DIY kit in order to fully cover the tank. :-)
Answer by: Randy on Jan 10, 2017, 4:35 PM
I would like to use this on a rimless tank, however the way my durso standpipe sticks above the overflow I do not believe there is clearance for the lid to sit inside the rim on the clips. Would there be any issues with measuring the outer rim of my tank and just letting this sit on top of everything?
Question by: John Kaplan on Jan 10, 2018, 10:51 AM
Thanks for contacting BRS!
One of the guys in the office does the exact same thing. It sits on the glass no problem. Have a great day!
