Well I just had the experience of having to release a T from the screen lid of my one my 5 gallon tanks so I decided its time to make the switch any Ideas of where I can buy premade ones?
Ps: The T in question was a 6 inch A.geniculata female

I don't know a soul that makes them pre-made, at least not from a big box store. Your best bet is to make it yourself. Maybe @EricsPlasticShop would make one for you or maybe TCA Exotics


Your T deserves a large container size too.

I'd get in contact with TCA exotics. They make custom lids for a fair price in addition to acrylic cages, just be sure to accurately provide the dimensions.

Petsmart carries hinged glass tops for standard size aquariums and has a plastic slip on back used for cutting notches etc in for filters and air lines, easily drilled for ventilation (not the glass lol).

Good luck,
Geoff

Simple and cheap fix. Remove the top, using clear packer tape, line the perimeter and replace top. I've done this to the only 2 screen topped enclosures I have. Just be sure to apply the tape to the opposite side also.

You can easily make one yourself. Simply measure your tank. find the right cut of acrylic...many websites cut it to order. and buy some cheap locking hasps and hinges. it wouldnt cost you more then $15 or so per lid you make.
