Innovative Marine has got you covered.

Provide protection for your livestock and encase any aquarium with this complete Do-It-Yourself mesh screen lid kit.

Glass lids trap in heat, do not allow proper evaporation and build up salt creep that can hurt light penetration Stylish mesh screen tops are the answers to these woes by being lightweight, allow zero heat buildup and have very little impact on light penetration.

Each kit includes: a cut to size frame, trimmable mesh screen, spline and break-away corners for cord management.

Features
  • Keeps livestock from leaving your tank
  • Powder coated for extra protection
  • Extra thick lightweight aluminum
  • Can be used for framed and rimless aquariums
  • Can be used with innovative Marine Lid Clips for rimless tanks (sold separately)
  • Available in three sizes: 24”x24”, 36”x24” and 48”x24” (for 96" aquariums, two 48" lids can be used)
  • Clip sizes available in 6, 8, 10, 12 & 15mm (sold separately)

These mesh screens will have very little impact on light penetration. They block less light than traditional glass tops.

PROS
Its better than glass, easier to remove for tank maintenance
CONS
Cord is junk about 45 days after installing.
REVIEW
Screen thickness appears to filter light, frames fairly solid but the cord used to affix screen to frame has deteriorated not sure if this due to sale exposure or just poor quality, any rate its a deal breaker for ever buying another. Hopefully the 2.0 version corrects this defect.

PROS
Sleek, well made, and functional
CONS
Thick screen mesh
REVIEW
As others have stated the mesh for the top is a little too thick for my liking so I substituted it with a different screen mesh. The frame fits nicely in rimmed tanks and can also be used rimless with their clips which is nice. Great way to keep your wrasses and other fish that tend to jump in the t...Read More

Too thick meaning it is EXTREMELY difficult to push into the aluminum slits with the unbelievably thick spline, this literally gave me a headache and took me over an hour to complete. The mesh is also white... WHI...Read More

It's cheap
REVIEW
My issue with this is the manner in which the screen was cut. The video suggests 30 min to complete the task. It took much longer mostly due to the fact that the piece of screen sent was not a perfect rectangle. If you order this prepare to tug on a rhombus shaped piece of plastic for at least an ho...Read More

Thick mesh
REVIEW
Takes a lot of time to put together and won't work for braced tanks. Mesh looks like it restricts a good bit of light but it does hold up well.
