    Hi, new to this site. i'm re-setting up my marine tank after moving and will be keeping a snowflake eel, so a cover for the aquarium is essential, I have a glass cover at present and if possible would like to keep but im concerned about gas exchange. My 600 litre system has a large 3 foot sump...

    I'm sure someone has solved this, but how do you make a window frame clear mesh cover that can fit around the pipes that lead off to my skimmer? I watched the youtube video and in the comments the poster said that he tried making small cuts to go around the pipes, but would not recommend doing...

    Hey all, I wanted to get a small snowflake eel for my 55 gal FWLR tank, but I want to make sure it does try to Nemo its way into the drain first. Right now I have four glass window louvers acting as a cover, but there is still space behind the glass at the back of the tank (since the glass is...

    So, I am in the midst of upgrading from a 20 long to a 40 gallon breeder (got it during the petco $1/gal sale). Unfortunately they were out of glass tops for this size so i've been on a mad hunt for a top! My 20 was mostly fish only but I did manage to grow a decent little colony of polyps and...

    Wanted to share something new I'm trying. I have been very hesitant to make a cover for my tank cause I think it kills the whole rimless look when you put a screen, or acrylic, over it. IMHO this alt. way looks a lot better and the tank keeps its rimless look more. Pretty simple. The screen...

    OK so normally I keep the top of my DT and sump covered with a glass lid. My theory is I don't want dust to settle in the tank and cause a problem. I know what everybody says about gas exchange and light diffusion but my house can get pretty dusty. Plus going to the store to buy distilled water...

    I'm trying to solicit advice on buying a cover for my 75 gallon tank. It has the two slats in the middle that would support holding one up. My lights are the Coralife T5 setup with the 4 bulbs that sits on top of the tank so putting a cover underneath shouldn't be a big deal. I made the mistake...

    I'm doing a c2c on my 100g tank. How to attach the gutter guard?? I know that is what most people are using to cover their overflows, but not sure how it's attached, especially to glass. This is what I bought but I'm not sure I bought the right stuff. Pictures would be helpful....thanks in advance.

    I have a 48" 2 x T5 strip and it needs a new plastic shield thing that covers the lights. I can't find them anywhere online and was wondering if anyone knew anywhere that sells them or a website I can go to? I believe the light is the same as the one in this link...
  13. NIMAS(Northern Indiana Marine Aquarium Society)
    I have an inwall tank that has an open top and it seems that about the only way that I lose fish (other than buying them from Petco) is by them jumping out of the tank. I am looking for suggestions or ideas on how to cover the tank. I don't want to use glass due to heat issues and I don't want...
