Question Where can I get a DIY mesh top kit?

Thinking of working on making one, where did you buy the materials? My tank will be a standard rectangular rimless design. I know BRS sells them but any distributes in Canada? or any local stores I can pick it up?

you can get the the frame, spline, and spline tool at the HD or Lowe’s. The 1/4” clear mesh can be bought from reefsupplies.ca See if you can add the mesh onto someone else’s order to save on shipping

I hate using the spline for this... never came out looking right and was a huge time suck. I used epoxy/silicone and sandwiched the screen (I got the reefsupplies one) in between two frames.
