    Red Sea Mesh Screen Top - wish I had this sooner

    Well the crazy storm the other night mustíve spooked my fish. I found my favorite fish dried up on the floor the next day Red Sea Mesh Screen Top - wish I had this sooner


    The irony is that I had a Red Sea screen top kit sitting in a corner waiting to be assembled this weekend.

    Well anyways today I wanted to make sure nothing else will jump out and put it together.

    First impression is wow, the packaging is pretty neat. It comes in a tubular package nice and neatly packaged contents inside.



    Nice thing about it is it comes with pretty much everything needed (clips to place screen flush inside tank, spline roller, inside corner brackets, enough mesh for 3 or 4 tops). Iíve looked at other kits that werenít as complete and extra components need to be purchased separately.

    Hereís my breakdown:

    Frames: nice frames and easy enough to cut

    Corner frame connectors: provided more than other kits and allowed me to clear a space for my return pipes over the back glass.

    Mesh: lots provided and seems typical material that allows maximum light thru

    Screen clips: a nice touch and classy looking. No need for plastic clips to the tank glass to hold the screen up. Easy to adjust too

    Assembly: super easy for me. Just measure, cut lengths to size put together then put in screen. I mustíve watched the Red Sea video on YouTube twice to make sure i knew what I was to do.

    I have the same screen over my 200 gallon. I love it! Really easy to build and saves your jumpers from their own suicide!
