What makes the difference on the number? I see that they have 316,304 and 200
Different numbers mean they are made at different ratios of metals. Generally 314 (might be wrong on this one) and 316 (positive on this) are used for fish tanks as they are the most resistant to corrosion.

SS mesh is magnetic so what you can do is just have some small magnets on the outside of your tank. The attraction should work through your tank glass/acrylic and keep the wall on. Most people either just shove the wall far enough down in their substrate or use suction cups.
