Product Description

Size: 12 by 30-Inch

Fresh Air terrarium covers are designed especially for the unique needs of reptile environments. Screening promotes the healthy exchange of air needed to keep cold-blooded reptiles healthy and active, with a metal mesh tough enough to withstand the clawing of the largest pets. Designed with lighting hoods in mind, the mesh also stands up to the high temperatures heating bulbs generate. Long lasting black steel frame keeps its shape through years of daily use. For added security, accessorize a Screen Cover with screen clips, combination locks and a cord access port (sold separately).

I purchased this to go over the top of my Zilla 36x18 "Critter Cage" when the original lid screen was damaged by my cat with an overzealous sense of curiosity. He likes to lay atop and soak up the heat that was meant for my 2 Mali Uromastyx reptiles in the terrarium below. Attempts at repairing the original tank lid proved to be a waste of time as the screen would only collapse again when the cat decided it was time for another sunbathing session. A lid this size was extremely hard to find, that is until I went to Amazon.com. When I did find it, I was still a bit nervous it would not fit my "Critter Cage" becasue of it's unique "slide-front" lid design. I'm happy to report that not only does it fit like a glove, but it also holds the weight of my buff kitty in search of a tan! Problem solved!

My father in law had an old 55 gallon tank sitting in the basement that was perfect for my bearded dragon, Norbert. One problem: no screen. I ordered this one and a few days later Norbert was able to move into his new abode. It fit perfectly on the tank and stands up to the 150w heat lamp I use (not to mention my cat occasionally napping on it). Definitely recommended!

I bought this screen for my corn snake because the screen I was using before was plastic and melted from my heat lamp. I had read great things about zilla screens and they are all true!

The screen is very sturdy and fits over the tank almost perfectly, there is a 1/4" gap on one side meaning I either mis-measured my tank, or the screen is actually 20-1/4" but this does not remove the functionality.
There are clips that are made to fit this screen, I have never personally used these clips, but it seems that you would need at least 6-8 to keep the screen completely secure and avoid a snake escape, which would cost more than the screen did! So, I went to the dollar tree, bought 2 packs of velcro, and stuck it on all sides of the tank. Using all of my strength, I couldn't get the screen lifted up without undoing the velcro so I am really confident that my little corn will not escape!

Overall, this is your best option to securing a loose-lid tank, and will guarantee your scaley friend will not escape if set up properly.

I know this is designed for a terrarium, but I use it to keep my cat away from my betta fish without depriving the fish of air (yes, betta need air). I just wish there were slightly larger gaps at the corners for the electrical cord of the heater... but of course the designers can't have foreseen the use I'm making of it. I've got it secured onto the tank with clips, so all is well, and the betta can just thumb his nose (neither of which he has) at the cat.

Got this for on top of a saltwater aquarium. It is easy to use and keeps the jumpers from commiting suicide by jumping out of tank while I am not at home.

Open screen covers like this are hard to find for a 2.5 gallon tank. Bought a Tarantula and wanted to display her a little better than using a Kritter Keeper. Bought a 2.5 gallon tank but the cover that came with it was all glass... did not work as it turned the tank into a terrarium... would have grown a lot of mold.

Fits my tank perfectly with no cracks or holes for the spider to escape.

We got his to replace our first one. We adopted a 6 month old kitten, and when he saw the crickets roaming through our beardie's terrarium, he couldn't resist getting into it to catch them. So when we caught him in the terrarium with our beardie, we realized the heat lamp had burned the screen and welded it to the terrarium. We got a second screen, but realized that in order for us to handle our lizard, we needed to wait for the heat lamp to cool off for 10-15 minutes. If you're impatient like me, i would just the heat lamp down, and it inevitably caused it to burn out for a more-than-gentle handle. We then purchased a 2 sided screen. One side rests, so you don't need to move the heat lamps, and the other side opens so you have easy access to your critter. Again, this is a good screen, nice quality, but it won't work so well if you plan to handle a desert pet.

I found a 40 gallon aquarium on sale without a lid. I purchased this to fit on the aquarium which is listed as 36.3x18.2. The lid fits! A little snug, but it works. I keep turtles in the tank, and the clamp lighting rests on top of the screen. There is even a gap in the corner of the lid that the filter cord fits under/through.
