Zilla Solid Screen Cover, 16x8
All enclosures need a lid to help prevent your pet from escaping. The Zilla Solid Screen Cover promotes healthy airflow and gives you a way to easily place heat lamps, UVB fixtures, and plant lights! The black mesh stands up to the high temperatures that heating bulbs generate, and the long-lasting black steel frame will keep its shape through years of use.
For best results, use with Zilla Screen Clips.
Fits tank size: 5.5 gallon
Dimensions: 16.5"L x 9"W x 0.75"H
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Is the mesh soft and easily ripped or solid?
The mesh is pretty thick - it would take a sharp instrument and force to break through it.
2. Can a UVB fixture be placed on this?
Yes, but the recommended distance between the lamp and your reptile will have to be reduced by about 40% to maintain optimal performance. Some people install the UVB under the screen or cut a hole in the mesh to get around this. Cutting the mesh is not recommended if you have a snake or other species that is likely to escape.
3. Can I use this with a tank that has water and fish in it?
The screen lid is suitable for both terrariums and aquariums.
