  • Decent value for a decent product By on 10/8/2017

    After watching the instruction video (DO THIS) I ended up with a pretty good looking screen top in one try. I highly recommend that you pick up a metal file to finish your hacksawed edges since they will NOT be clean. Also, a metal file allows you to shave an extra mm or two if your cut isn't perfect like mine. I received enough spline and mesh netting to do this four times over (24"kit), so the extra was nice.

    Using the clips on your rimless tank? FACTOR IN the inner tank width those clips take away when measuring. I had to painstakingly shave two of my frame pieces down for a proper fit.

    Also, 1/4" netting is plenty small to keep jumpers out (I don't know what another reviewer was talking about). Maybe the smallest neon goby could make it through if it had a perfectly vertical trajectory, but nothing in my tank is making it through this netting.
  • Very disappointed in this product By on 9/4/2017

    This kit is poorly designed and constructed. The metal frame is very flimsy and the paint was scratched all over when I received it. There was no instructions in the kit. Also you can only make a square frame, the corner pieces do not work if you try to make a notch around your light fixtures or cabling, etc. The rubber material that is supposed to hold the screen pops out all the time. And when I tried to put some tension on the net to take out the slack it bows the frame. I wasted $45.00 as it all ended up in the trash.
  • Mesh is too wide By on 8/18/2017

    Fish can jump through this 1/4 netting. Are you not aware of this BRS? A quick internet search will show you how common this is. Something should be said about this in the description. I lost a firefish and a juvenile clownfish. The fish couldn't have gone in a worse way than being trapped on top of the net under the light looking down at the water. Something meant to keep fish safe and in the tank, did the exact opposite.
  • Good Kit By on 4/17/2017

    Simple to use; impossible to get the mesh taught and the frame square. Not bad for the price. Simple to assemble and does prevent fishacide
  • Easy to follow, quick setup. By on 1/4/2017

    The product itself is a great idea. It comes with everything you need to make your screen top (you WILL need to buy the clips seperate fyi) . It does exactly what it is supposed to do and you should be able to build your screen in about 10min unless you have to alter it for fit. That brings me to my only real complaints. I ordered the 24x24 top kit but it is actually 25.5" x 25.5" so it requires precise cuts on each side to make it fit. Not a big deal to most but for some that could be an issue. I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars based solely on value. The product is extremely overpriced IMO. Nothing you do will make this top look like a $40 top! But it gets the job done and you always receive great support/service from BRS making it your best option.
  • Light weight but non-rectangle shapes are impossible By on 11/29/2016

    I wanted to make the screen around my overflow but found that to be impossible to keep the screen taunt. The minute you put pressure on the screen to keep it taunt, the pressure pushes the rails in and distorts the shape. This is especially pronounced with a larger size aquarium.

    I would say stick to rectangle shapes to make this work well.
  • Excellent By on 10/11/2016

    Its lightweight, easy to move about, and very easy to assemble. They gave much More than enough netting and I would gladly recommend this screen top.
  • Great Product By on 9/5/2016

    assembly was easy, components were of good quality, and the finished product looks great. One suggestion is to take your time and you will get a real professional result.
  • Works great By on 6/21/2016

    Easier than I thought to put together. Works well. Looks good on my redsea tank
  • Great Product By on 6/18/2016

    Was a little worried that this would be difficult for me to put together (I'm not very handy), but was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to put together. Used a hack saw to cut the pieces to size. Spline roller made it incredibly easy to make the screen secure. Love the way it looks on my rimless tank. You can't even see it!
