    Hello Sponsors.

    Does anyone stock or plan on stocking the mesh screen cover kits below? Or even just the plastic mesh material? The only similar mesh I can find locally is used in gardens but its very thick and ugly.

    Its a very neat solution for us guys with rimless tanks and have fish jumping out all the time.

    has anyone gotten that screen from Idol yet?

    if someone has, can they pls post some pics :)

    Idol also said it wasnt clear mesh, it was green, but it doesnt block any light.

    i've enquired, so i can post details when i get a reply.

    I made one myself. Send me a pm and we can whatsapp. Easier to send photos and details. Took me 30 mins.
