    Any Idea where I can get mesh screen to go on top of over flows.
    I have 50mm stand pipes and want 2 sizes of mesh. one for fry tanks and one for grow outs. (fresh water angels)

    Tried a hardware store? You can get a plastic 5 mm mesh at most garden stores. Hardware stores may also have it and may also have mosquito netting. Otherwise, why not a coarse sponge?

    James, try Builders and Agrimark. They have green and white plastic mesh in diffrent sizes in the gardening section. They sell it per/m. Sivil construction also use black mesh.
    Good luck!

    You can also try your fabric store. They sell 100% synthetic mesh in all hole sizes and colours.
