It's not screen lol, it's plastic mesh. They make these lame craft/yarn things with it. I would get some tie-wire from the hardware store, and kind of lace it through the holes along the edges, and loop the end of the wire around the top of the tank, kind of like a hook.

Would Fiberglass screen not work? I'm not sure when the next I'll be at Wally world will be.

Hmm, I dunno about fiberglass particles in the water. If you were SURE there wouldn't be any, then I would think it would be okay. *shrug* You will need something to keep them separated (obviously), non-toxic, and able to KEEP them separated.

LOL ok. It's in the craft section, $3 for 6 sheets. You will probably need some fishing line too if you don't have any, depending on the size of your tank.
