Before I diy a screen cover for my Red Sea reefer 350, i want to see what are other options out there besides the red Red Sea DIY kit.

I have heard there are several companies that custom make this fancy looking acrylic tops, can anyone tell me which company has the best pricing and turn over time. Thx

I have a octo lid for my reefer 350. It’s a a great top. Acrylic tops are not cheap in general

Just found the price on the site, $225 for a cover, I can’t justify it. Maybe around 100-150 since the diy Home Depot style would costs me around $30, of course it’s no where it’s nice.

I have Clearviewlids. I hear you. Was in same situation. But in the end I wasted more money trying DIY than if I had spent the 200+ on the acrylic lids to begin with. (Yes, I suck at DIY:))

My 2 best options:
Octo Aquatics
and Clearview lids,
Clearview has non custom options so its easier to match it with ur AIO reefer
