ClearView Lid Styles Explained

All lids are a polycarbonate lid frame with a mesh center, unless ordered via email as a solid lid.*
Shipping charges paid at checkout cover ONLY the cost of shipping and do not apply to or cover duty or customs fees for purchases made outside the USA.
  • The Classic Lid - The lid that put ClearView Lids on the map and started it all.  A solid framed, non-modular design.  Machined as a single piece frame directly out of a solid sheet of polycarbonate plastic.  Custom built to order and fully customizable to suit your needs.  For those that have an uncompromising desire for minimalist aesthetics; the Classic ClearView is still the ultimate 'go-to'.  
  • The Tsunami lid - The first lid to feature our patent pending modular interlock design.  Tsunami is a solid framed lid constructed of interlocking sections.  Tsunami looks towards the future by allowing you to reconfigure sections of your lid as your needs change.  Tsunami can be reconfigured to support changes in your equipment needs (i.e. different light setup, adding extra feed doors).  As Tsunami uses an interlocking section design, it produces less waste during the production process; making Tsunami our most economical design choice.  Yet, with the integrated support tab system nestling your lid below the glass edge, Tsunami blends right in; evoking a subtle statement of protection over your aquarium. 
  • The Tsunami lid cannot be configured to fit a larger tank than your original order.
  • *All cutouts ordered must be at least 3.26" from any corner. 
  • The Pisces EXO - Such a unique and ground breaking feat of fish safety tech that just calling it a 'lid' would be a great injustice.  The Pisces Exoskeleton is in a class all by itself.  The main frame utilizes our patent pending interlocks which were introduced with the Tsunami. The interlock configuration is adapted in this design, however, to incorporate a vented frame.  The vented frame all but eliminates any chance of condensation collecting on the bottom of the frame, contributes to better air/gas exchange, and boasts a better than 50% reduction in frame weight compared to similar Classic or Tsunami lids.
  • The Pisces EXO cannot be configured to fit a larger tank than your original order.
  • *All cutouts ordered must be 5" from any corner. Cord slots may be placed directly in the corners.
  •  Solid Insert Kits are available for the Pisces EXO.  These removable inserts allow you the ability to control evaporation and maintain better air/gas exchange at the same time.  Inserts are also a great solution for those with over curious feline friends!
    • Inserts kits are currently only available by email request and separate invoicing after order has been placed.
    • Insert kits cover ONLY the center mesh of the Pisces EXO, not the vented frame.
    • All Pisces Lids for tanks 4 feet and over will include one removable center brace.

There are also many great features that are shared by all ClearView Lid styles.  Some of them include:

  • All lids are designed to rest inside the rim of your tank, to give you that signature ClearView appearance, while still providing the peace of mind that comes with knowing your finned friends are safe.
  • All lids, and lid accessories, are made with Lexan, a clear polycarbonate plastic which is also commonly used in manufacturing bullet resistant glass, riot shields, and jet windshields.  Its extremely durable.  We do not use acrylic in any of our lid products.  Acrylic will bow and warp when used for this application.
  • Every lid is customizable to accommodate feed doors, light mounts, overflows and auto feeding systems.  However, only Tsunami and Pisces EXO can be customized in the future to accommodate changes in configuration.
  • Our lids are screened with a UV protected 1/4” plastic mesh, which is secured with spline under the frame to continue that sleek look and also to allow for ease of replacing the screen if needed in the future.
  • All lids are custom programmed, cut, screened, and shipped from our facility here in the USA.  No outsourcing....from initial contact all the way to boxing and labeling your very own ClearView Lid.
  • Each lid ordered is made for the individual who has ordered it, to suit the needs of their tank and preferred set up.
  • Custom lids are available for all tanks, including those not listed on our product pages.  We however do not offer lids for corner bow front tanks, hex tanks, or tanks with rounded corners that are not already in our library. 
  • All Custom Lids will be programmed with an offset for fitment.

  *Solid lids are only available upon emailed request, direct invoicing and only available on small tanks.
