Types of screens, or need opinion
I'm planning on going to Home Depot and picking up some screen.
What is safe for usage under water? We know SS is but I can't find that local.
I believe they carry nylon, aluminum and maybe vinyl.
Are those kinds okay? Will aluminum erode in freshwater? It's to make aquarium dividers for fish, not sensitive inverts. Okay, maybe one for snails too, actually.
I know I can use binding bars to hold the screen up but don't they have screen holders at hardware stores? Screen inserts, or something? I have no idea what they're called, if such a thing exists, or if they'd be safe.
Anything besides unknown adhesive that I should stay away from?
Or, should I nix the window screen idea and use fabric tulle? I have a feeling that that might be hard to work with because it's so flimsy and because I had a holding box with fabric screen on it but the water never flowed through so it was pointless.
MONEY IS TIGHT.
