Check this clip on youtube from bulkreefsupply: YouTube - DIY screen top for aquariums.mpg

Once I replace my lighting system I will look into trying to make that with screening from Home Depot.

I got plenty of polypropelene netting for a DIY cover if you're so interested.

See this post... Jumper lid. The answer?

Not right now. Will that polypropelene netting crude from the salt creep?

The netting is UV protected. It will not change anything that isn't already happening with your tank. Only jumping. Not sure what "crude from the salt creep" is.

Sorry about that I misspelled it: (Corrosion or Corrode) What salt does to all metal objects and makes it rusty.???

I made my covers from the netting, framed with PVC quarter round stainless steel screws ( I hear there are vinyl ones out there too), and pvc glue. No rusting with that stuff.
