    Are you talking about the rolls of foam rubber found in craft and fabric stores. if so the answer is no. That is open cell foam. In other words, air will go thru it. What you would need is closed cell foam.
    But nothing is going to help if you don't close off the screen top.

    Even open cell foam will help as long as you don't have air blowing on it. I think I know what foam you are talking about and it should help just use it on the outside of the tank.
