I wove mesh in among the holes and coved the top with a sheet of acrylic. Seemed to work OK. There are many variations on this that others have used.

Yep, just brush softly !!! If you hit it every few days, you are usually ok...keep an eye on your silica levels, though, so you don't end up with that darn hair algae !
