    Hi all,

    Just wondering if the colour of the mesh makes any difference. Just found some cheap stoneware blue mesh and wondering if it's ok to use.

    I would only use the clear (not even white) mesh, because the colors are additives, I'm not big on any additives. Also the clear mesh allows some light to travel through the screen members, and while that may not seem like it matters, allowing light from one side to travel through to the anchor point of the algae on the other side certainly does not hurt.

    Fair point hadn't even considered that. Thanks
