Nuvo Atoll with DIY Lid

Recommended Posts

Irishreefer

I just recently upgraded from an Nuvo10 to the Nuvo Atoll.  My biggest hurdle was that I HAVE to have a lid. Mainly because I have young kids that like to mess with the livestock and get water everywhere.  The custom lids I found were going to run over $200 and take months to get.  So Here is my DIY solution that ended up costing me about $45 in materials.  Its not perfect, but I think it will do the job.  I had to improvise with most of my methods of fabrication using what I could find in my garage 🤣

That lid came out great, no gaps for the fish to escape! Its actually impressive how tight the fitment looks. Nice job.

Thanks!   And most of all it's a tight fit so little fingers can't get it open(knocking on wood)
