    If anyone knows where I can get a screen to go on my 55 gal tank, at a decent price without paying more for the shipping than the item itself; I'd greatly appreciate your help. I have looked online for awhile but keep getting some crazy prices at checkout.:eek:

    Your local petstores should have them. I know that both Petsmart and Petco here carry them. Or you could just make one yourself with hardware cloth and a wooden frame.
    Whatever way you go you want to make sure that the screen openings are no less than 1/8 of an inch and 1/4 would be even better. If the screen is too fine it will shade out a lot of your UVB lighting.

    Making one is the cheaper way to do it. If you buy one from the pet store it will cost you a good chunk of change.

    Also a lot of the screens you buy at a pet store don't fit well on the tanks.
