egg crate canopy

I saw that steve-s had mentioned an egg crate cover for aquariums. I have a limited selection of local fish stores, as a result I am having trouble finding some. Just wondering if anyone could post me a link to a website that carries them. thanks!!

Hey go to lowes or home depot. In the "lighting" section or in the ceiling tiles section you will find what we are using. It's the white plastic grid for lights. Works great.

Yeah your LFS probably wont have that...they rather you drop 30 or so on a glass cover then 10 on a egg crate....

Its great stuff...you can cut it to the size you need and cut out all the openings you need for equipment and it really does help keep the tank temp down during the day

Yeah I think they call them light diffusers, but most people will know what you mean if you ask for eggcrate.

No, just be sure it's not color coated. Some come with different colors but will typically flake off and can be a hazard to the tank.

Cheers
Steve
