Thanks for your comments.
Not sure about the aluminium oxidizing when not contact with salt water. Maybe if it was immersed in salt water?
I have tried the plastic light diffuser on a previous tank. I didn't like the way it reduced the amount of light entering the tank. The plastic on this netting is about as thick as fishing line and hence a lot of light gets through, but hopefully no fish
Price was a bit higher than I would have liked due to buying excess material and a frame roller tool I will never use again LOL
Tank is not grounded, but I have GFCI on my mains panel. I did have a grounding probe on my to buy list for a previous tank, but never bought one.
