      Go buy a window screen frame kit from home Depot. I have some 1/2" black mesh you can have. Like the stuff covering the koi at aquatic warehouse. My lid total cost was $15

      You can buy the screen kits at lowes or hd, then buy this screen mesh on ebay. comes out pretty decent for really cheap. https://ebay.us/LBnkmg

      Its aluminum so you don't really have to worry about it much. I did this on my 220 and it worked great

      Glad I saw this post. I lost 2 fish last week due to jumping out overnight

      This is what i used, except I spent a little more money on the brushed aluminum frame, instead of the painted white aluminum.

      I would recommend getting the 1/4 screen from Bulk Reef Supply. I used the 1/2 netting before and some of my wrasses would jump right through and one even got it head stuck in it.

      True, if you have small fish, get the smaller mesh. My smallest fish is about 4" so I didn't need the small mesh
