Fluval edge + rust = :(

Has anybody had any rust problems with the fluval edge top cover. You think they would put a better coating on this fancy metal screen that's in constant contact with humidity. Disappointed.

Not yet. Mine is only about 7 months old though. I would imagine there should be a good DIY solution for this.

That's about how old mine is. I'm a professional painter by trade... but not too sure if I should spray it with enamel. I might spray it and set it aside for a few days to let the paint fully cure. My worry is that condensation may build up on the painted screen and drip back into the tank. I'm probably worrying a little too much about it, a replacement is about 45 including shipping. What do you have in your edge ? Do you like it ?

I have the 12 gallon version. Right now I have a young trio of German Blue Rams and 4 neon tetra. There are also probably about 10 cherry shrimp left in there. I think the Rams are picking them off slowly. It's a beautiful tank and everything has been going well with it. The Rams have laid eggs 2x so far. Maintenance is slightly more work. The one thing I find really annoying is trying to catch fish. There just isn't any room in there to maneuver a fish net.

That sounds like a wonderful set up. Blue rams are beautiful fish.
