Bay Area Reefers | BAR

The #1 site for all coral reef enthusiasts of the Bay Area (San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose)

In this workshop, supporting members will be provided the materials and support to build a custom screen lid. We’ll build screens similar to the ones BRS sells in kits - the clear netting transmits ~99% of light and keeps your fish safe.

Date: Saturday, May 12, 10a-12p
Location: Liz’s (chromis) house, those of you that don’t have my address yet can PM me for it.
Cost: Free to supporting members.

What you need to do:
1. RSVP by April 21 in this thread so we can order the right amount of screen materials.
2. Bring your inner tank dimensions, including dimensions of any cutouts you need for overflows, cords or pipes.

Example:
