Hello everyone, not sure where to look to find mesh screen tops for aquariums? My cousin has a 120 gallon tank 48x24x24 and is looking for a screen top, so its betters for the LEDS, basically just to prevent his wrasses from jumping out if the tank. Im not really looking for a DIY project, figured i see if there is any commercial available/or if keepers make them for sale. Thanks

You would need 3 pieces of framing and 2 packs of corners,Your probably looking at less then 30 bucks
I like to use white aluminum framing

You’re sure that it’s 1/4”? Don’t think that I’ve ever seen that.
You are right, it is bigger. Sorry about that.

What I did, is make a border around my fish tank with cut outs for wire and hose. I also cut out the middle and also glued handles to the side using egg crate. What I like is that I first made it cover completely and then cut out the middle for my light fixture. I cut it with landscape shears.
