Instead of screen on top of the egg crate what else can I use because I am currently using screen right now and somehow my bedding is seeping through the rocks and screen. What about the thin filter pads they use in sumps?
walmart has seven point needle mesh(white, in the crafts isle) that allows plants roots to grow through and filter and absorb excess water in your (our) tanks. (1) egg crate (2) mesh (3) fine layer of stone (4) peat, coco,moss. your choice.
go to my dendroboard gallery.
For a while I was having similar problems using vinyl screening over the egg crate, but in talking to Amanda Sihler from AZDR.com, she recommended using seven point needle mesh (found at Michael's, Jo-ann Fabrics). Just cut it to size, it works great so far. You probably won't have as much trouble if you are using leca as the bottom substrate.
