Thanks for all the help folks. I'm finding this tank to be quite the challenge.

I would only buy the screen from BRS Home depot has the roller & the frame a lot cheaper then BRS. Not sure about the rubber gasket stuff that goes inside the frame if it is cheaper at Home Depot or BRS. I did not price that one there.

Yeah, but they would have to have really really good aim. The holes on the eggcrate aren't that big.

You can make a nice tank top with black deer netting and parts to make a screen for a window. It fits in there nicely and gives you a good coverage.

This is what I use. Much less light loss than anything else and cheap. It also allows the tank to breath, a very important consideration.

I'm just using my old glass top at the moment. There aren't many lid options out there to my dismay.
