    shade cloth, easier to get it out, roll it up when you want to clean it.

    Or anything flexible.

    Shade cloth! Cheap, easy to replace and great texture for the algae to grow on.

    I am leaning toward mosquito mesh, but theoretically it should be about the same thing as shadecloth, just that shade cloth will ofer more flexability when removing.

    I have shadecloth, maybe you can come over and we can trim to suit what you need - it is the rediculous overhand piece which has been on my Lapa which I have been threatening to trim for months now...now there is a double reason to get that done.
