Default LF: Fine mesh screen netting

Locally I can only find 1/2" plastic mesh for making lids. I know Bulk Reef Supply carries the 1/8" clear netting, it there anywhere in Canada to buy it? I see it's called insulation netting, but even under that name I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Are you looking for something like bug screen netting? You can get that at Home Depot. They sell it in rolls. Black plastic or stainless.

I used black tulle for my tank.

The stuff they make veils out of.

I found the white mesh way to reflective and white for my liking.

It was distracting when I looked at my tank.

I picked the tulle up from a fabric store

Hmm...I might give the tulle a shot. Did you get do any before/after PAR measurements? Just wondering how much light it blocks. Thanks for the idea. I wasn't really looking for something THAT fine, but it might do the trick.

Haven't tested par, but visually no difference.
Stuff is very fine
