I see I lot of people are using ss mesh in there tanks so I wanted to mention this. I restore vintage motorcycles and have started building choppers. and use ss fasteners all the time. something that I have been hearing is stainless WILL break down and rust over time. this is coming from guys that have been building choppers for 30+ years. I'm sure its fine for the short term but I would keep an eye on it.

Motorcycles take a lot of abuse that isn't present in a fish tank though. Vibrations, dirt, grime, heating and cooling, salt, etc.
