    Hey reefers

    I have a side panel overflow and would like to cover it up. Any idea what material I can use?

    I have a black plastic panel which I bought from a petshop but I'm not sure if it is reef safe.

    It is a slim overflow so I will have stick it on the inside of the tank.

    Any ideas?

    Hi bud. I added a ABS mesh sheeting you can buy this from any plant nursery. Works perfect. The holes are also quite small so none of your LS will get through it. Good luck
