@ncfishguy I just googled the tank: Deep Blue Professional 57-Gallon Reef Ready Rimless Tank, 36 x 18 - If that is correct then it would be 36+18 = 54 Shipped if you want me to make it. If you want to pick up the screen, framing and need the part simply see price guide above.

Also note that you just made it over the $50 Mark so you would be able to choose an extra piece such as a door, extra corner pieces, u-shaped piece, Etc.

Hey @captrichc I can certainly help you, is the tank 6ft long rimless? For something that size shoot me a PM as I will have to figure out the price for you. Shipping is really the only concern I have. If you want to make it yourself I can print out all/any parts that you need. Thew top frames are aluminium Screen framing that you can get from any hardware store.

@Triple.T Bowfront would be tricky, I can make the 3D pieces at any angle and we could make a few of them to make the turn, but there would be gaps as I cant bend the framing...

It would be something like this - The framing would be the green --

Interesting for sure - going to look into this when I get to work. I have a 34 deep blue frag tank rimless and I pump my returns over the back so I'm wondering if I should cut them out or just stop the screen 3 inches short - maybe make a second tiny screen ?

I’d like a top made for a 20g innovative marine drop off tank with a feeding door. Feel free to send me a message about it. I need something my blue spot jawfish can’t get through I’m getting tired of my ghetto rigged top haha.

Hey @Zoaologist I am so sorry, I missed your post. If you want to shoot me over a picture of what I am working with I can get you on the list. I think I will be caught back up on orders by end of the week! Let me know what I can do to help. :)

All....

Jeff is an absolute machine... once he got my dimensions he cooked up a 3D drawing of all the parts required and we talked through everything to make sure it worked perfectly... parts arrived practically the next day which I was thrilled about. I threw together the screen as I was excited and want to get a blenny again... last one jumped :( and here's a pic. The 3D parts are printed high quality and everything fit together perfectly.

I would recommend getting a screen from him in a heart beat. +100000

Also had him print out a little test tube dry rack :)

Couldn't be more happy.
