Hello!  I've been breeding zebrafish using marbles, but recently 
someone suggested to me that there are systems with mesh 
screens that would be easier than using marbles.  Does anyone 
know if or where such a thing is available?  Or do I just go out and 
buy some sort of mesh from the hardware store and stick it at the 
bottom of the tank for the eggs to fall through?  If so, what type and 
size mesh do I use?  Thanks in advance.
