Updated shot. I will add some sort of branch structure on left for more corals.

I got my screen top built today. I use acrylic for the frame. Takes a whole lot longer, but I like the look better than aluminum framed ones. It's curing now. Pics tomorrow.

Acrylic framed mesh top

Very happy with it. I used 1/2X1/4" instead of 1/4x1/4", much better. No bowing.

I can't pick up the details in the pictures. How did you attach the netting to the acrylic?

I have just been putting the direct link from photobucket, but noticed it looses a lot of resolution..what's a better way to post pics?

I built two identical frames out of the acrylic rod, then sandwiched the net between them and used weldon to glue the two frams and netting together. You have to glue small sections at a time pulling then et tight as you go.

I have about a dozen sps frags and half a dozen chalice frags coming today. I have never kept chalices, I guess I will see what all the fuss is about.

Well, have 24x24x9 frag tank, stand, and equipment on order. First I got redbugs, easy enough to get rid of. But recently found AEFW. So it's going to be a pull out of all my acros into the frag tank for weekly dips. Then scrap whatever rock I have in the display with acros encrusting.

From now on all frags will be dipped with Bayer, go into the frag tank and get at least one more dip before going to the display. Hope I can save a lot of my acros. Got some nice ones growing.

Due to pests issues will be taking all corals off rocks and will be starting aquascape over with dry rock. Here is what I have so far:

I like the ledges, they look sharp. That with plenty of room to grow, I think you will be happy.

After treating the SPS for pests in the frag tank and reaquascaping things are looking pretty good.
