Why top lids for your tank? (My Opinion)

Recommended Posts

Noinoi24

So I got a chance to get the top lids for my Reefer 170 after finding it on Facebook of all places I got excited. At first I was NOT convinced having to spend this amount of money just for a tank lid, well after some research regarding Lexan and their pros and cons, I STILL WAS NOT convinced until they came up with this FUSION VENT DESIGN. I got it ordered...

When I received the Lid, I was surprised on how thick the Lexan used. I would say 1/4 inch thick, it has options for feeding doors, cable slots (per request/extra charge), and this nice moonlight kit, (not sure how they call it). All I can say is I’m blown away! Talking about fusion vents, it serves its purpose in preventing accumulation of tank evaporated water in the lid, I never had issues with shading or shadowing in my tank as well...

 


Note that due to the demand, I had to wait over 7-8 weeks to get mine, but it is worth the wait. Also please take into account that these are custom made, so prices vary. I am not a seller, I am simply making you guys aware of this company as I have very good experience with them, and the product itself in my opinion is beautiful.

 

you can contact them: https://safetoplids.com/


My brother and I made a video unboxing, if you guys are interested on how it looks on my tank, watch the video.

Woah, I never said it was a bad thing 😉

i'll pass.  it was a simple question.  

 

the mesh looks to have some divots/waves in it, etc as well, which would drive me nuts, although its very hard to tell much from that video.

 

I'll stick with eggcrate.

I'll be the test bunny. So I clicked the link...............They appear to be custom built, which means there is no set price and they are all different. It appears that you can get "TRON-like led's in the lid which IMO opinion looks pretty sweet. You can have custom cutouts made for whatever you want it seems. Looks like if you can dream it they can build it. However you have to tell them what you want and get a quote which I DON'T like. With all that said.........They are probably pricey and I kinda want one.

You'll have to keep us posted if you get a quote.  I am curious as to the cost, but not going to pull the trigger at the moment and hate to waste their time to get a quote. 

 

And the led's look badass

well, those waves/divots are so easy to take off. they probably overlooked it, but I was able to fix it in less that 10 mins with a hair dryer.  Eggcrate is not a bad idea... Enjoy!

I recently got a quote.  All I can say is the price is similar to my custom lid I got from artfully acrylic.
