I had a diamond watchman goby that jumped out of my closed top tank. I have 2 holes in the back corners of my tank that are where my pipes come in and out. They are about 2 inches across at the most, and that hole is made smaller by the pipes. Some how he still managed to get through one of those holes. Not a very pleasant surprise to find behind my tank.

But I have a yellow watchman goby right now and he seems a lot calmer and has shown no signs of jumping, the diamond would jump out of the water and bounce off the top.

I think it varies between species and between fish. But definitely get a top if ur considering a goby just in case urs end up as bonkers as mine was.

Petsmart sells them for less than $20. I have glass covers on most of my tanks except for the 55g sw.

Maybe, they come in pretty small boxes and are usually right by the hoods.
