After having a few fish jump over the past few months i re-did my screen top to be sleeker and less of an eye soar

That black bridal tulle is the best I've found for looks, but it can get dusty depending on your place. Best part is it's dirt cheap, like 3 bucks a square meter.

I get about a gallon a day or a litre over

Bridal Thulle! Thank you I couldn't remember the name of it for the life of me. But it looks way better than the clear mesh and blends right in

Thanks for the tip shiftline. I never knew inset corners existed and refused to cover and have a screen just sitting ontop of my eurobrace.

For anyone interested in calgary chinook windows on 16th ave carries them dirt cheap. I also picked up 8 spares for anyone on the south side of the city. PM me if you want to give this a go.
