Fish see the holes in your cover and aim for them. If you have holes in your cover larger than the fish, they will get out.

I used plastic screening that I got from bulk reef supply which I dont think ships overseas. BUT if you call them they might do it since the netting is so light and small. Just a thought.
+1. Follow this advice. It cost under $30 bucks to make 3 screen lids for my 125. So under $10 a screen.
Also I used fiberglass on mine, no issues yet
