Screen for this tank?

Okay, a few may know that im looking for a crestie or a pair, and well i have this tank i don't know how many gal's but you can maybe tell by the picture.



But i need to know how to make a screen or door for when i turn it on its side for a crestie setup.
Does anyone have any ideas? or should i just go buy a new setup? that won't need any work?

Please help im not very DIY


Ps, ive tried to look everywhere for the already made reptile screens here and no luck at all lol

I didn't make mine (although I know plenty of people do), I just bought one of the sliding door kinds. Those aren't sold in your pet store? They're usually intended specifically for reptiles.

My father and I made a cover for my 40 gallon by building a wooden frame that went around the tank. We used premade decroative wall mouldings to make the doors by glueing screen into it and attaching hinges.

Let me know how it goes... I need to make one too but I havent tried it yet!
Just take 4 pieces of wood that are as long/wide as your tank, nail them together to make a frame, staple some wire to them.... and TA DA! Put it over the top of your tank and you have a screen lid! LOL

Hope you don't mid Jess, I copy and pasted this from the chat box...
