    I use sheer fabric that I got from a craft store for my newly hatched brine. I paid $2.50 for 3 ft of fabric. Then I use a Embroidery hoop for the frame. The hoops come in several different sizes. The smallest I've been able to find is a 3" diameter. The 3" one cost me less than $3. There is no sewing or glueing involved. I've been using them for several months now with no issues. They get soaked in bleach a few times a day. It looks like this:

    I don't let the metal part touch the water when I feed my fry.

    PVC could also be used as a frame.
