    I've sadly lost another fish thru my overflow. An ideas how I can prevent this. Will post pics shortly. Looking for some type of netting or mesh I can use to block it.

    Egg crate will work. How much do you need to cover? I have some old perspex overflow grid you can have, but only maybe 10cmx1.5cm

    I doubt it's much, that sounds like it will work. It's worth a shot. Thanks. Pm me details please

    The perspex grid will be perfect!

    @r0ckf1re I think Perspex drilled full of holes should do the job as well if you don't come with @hotdog83 give me a call so we can make a custom guard.
