    Hey all just wondering if i could get some ideas on how you go about sealing the top of the tank. I was just going to make my own screen for the top but wanted to get some ideas first. thanks

    I use good old duck tape. Remember when you mention screen, nothing metal can be used as it's toxic to inverts. The GPO at the Baltimore Aquarium had a type of mesh attached to 2x4's bolted with cement blocks on top. Granted you don't need to be this extreme but I have always used a glass canopy and then proceeded to duck tape all openings.

    Have you had saltwater experience? Check out the great threads and info under Cephcare.

    And :welcome:
