A net cover to prevent fish jumping by Red Sea

One of the problem that mainly affects us is the fact that a few fish can jump outside the tank. This feature becomes limiting in our choice of the eventual guests we would like to see in our tanks.

That’s why Red Sea had a brilliant idea. Up to the present day the only way was to set up a plexiglass cover. But doing so the amount of light that should reach the corals was declining.

The customizable Aquarium Net Cover by Red Sea

The net, offered in a tube, can be shaped as we please with a cutter, and placed in a plastic frame that is assemblable and customizable. In fact we have an external perimeter, like this shown in the pictures, that can be connected through angular joints. In the perimeter itself  are available a few spots of different sizes, in order to accommodate the support brackets , the feeders and any other object.

A very well designed net cover, in our opinion.

  • R42080 60×60 cm long;
  • R42081  90×60 cm long;
  • R42082  120×80 cm long;
  • R42083  150×80 cm long;
  • R42084  180×80 cm long;

We really liked this solution, and the price, abundantly under 100 dollars (different according to the measures, of course), makes it very attractive.  Especially for its constructive care and its adaptability to every tank.

We remember that in Italy the brand Red Sea is an exclusive of Mantovani Pet Diffusion.
