    Octo Lids™

    I've been making plastic mesh screen tops since 2010... BEFORE ANYONE ELSE! I use 3/8" clear plastic and 1/4" clear mesh netting. Cutouts and feed doors are available upon request. If you have plastic trim on your tank, the lid will sit on the inside ledge of the trim. If you have a rimless tank, the lid will sit on 2" tabs on the tank rim and the lid will sit down inside the tank approx. 1/4".

    * Octo Lids™ should not be used in applications where the lid will get saturated with water. For more information please see the warranty page.

    * Turnaround time is generally around 3-4 weeks. Sometimes faster!

    * Hinged feed doors (4″ x 3″) are $25 extra!

    * Cut-outs are $FREE!

    * Quotes are good for 30 days.

    Order HERE.

    Just curious if they make a rigid acrylic mesh as opposed to the netting? Like a wafer style totally flat/solid and uniform sheet.

    It would eventually bow acrylic bows if its only on the edge it will be fine but if you put any cross braces they will bow

    Yes, but I don't know how practical it would be. the stuff I've seen is expensive and not very clear.

    He's referring to a specific type of rigid plastic netting. I'm guessing it would be similar to the stuff found at craft stores. it's also used in media reactors.

    Actually, I first started using rubber spline 7 years ago. then I got a lot of requests for clear screws. now it's trending back to the spline.

    How would light penetrate
    thats why i thought it was making acrylic into a grid sort of like a transparent diffuser (stuff we use as cheap frag racks)
    The only other stuff i can think of is plastic chicken wire the flat plastic netting but that's not transparent and wouldn't look good
