    You could always hit up homedepot or lowes and make a window screen for a bit cheaper. You don't need it to not block out light or anything and it will allow for gas exchange. Might compare pricing, but I think it's a bit cheaper

    I'm such a doofus, why didn't I think of that.. Obviously too simple so it fly right over me!

    Awesome suggestion, thanks!

    I was thinking tarp the exposed wood with some netting cutouts so the wood wouldn't fall apart from salt exposure, but egg crate and netting is so much easier

    Nevermind, should have taken 5 seconds to Google BEFORE posting.. It's a polyclad flatworm, sounds like another unwelcome guest

    Hey was it difficult to make that cut out in the screen? Do the elbows/frame need a lit of modifications to work in reverse?

    It's a Phrikoceros species and more than likely a P. mopsus.

    Not difficult at all, just had to use the Dremel to file down a couple parts on the elbows to use them in reverse, otherwise super easy

    Well luckily it was just floating in the tank and I grabbed it!
