Is be curious to see if the o2 co2 and nox gases are at much different levels under the glass lid then outside of it.

It is not airtight and air movement ad osmosis should make the levels somewhat equal?

I once had a friend who's cat tried to jump onto the top of his tank. 110 tall.
He had no top on it. We learned that cats don't float

I'm not sure that article contemplates a sump or skimmer?

I only use half of the glass lid to prevent little bubbles hitting my lights.

It may be enough, but then again, it may not.

I currently have a glass lid on my 20g for when I get a fire fish because I've read they are jumpers, any better options? If so where do I get them?

Eggcrate at Home Depot. $14.99 for 4x2 piece then cut it based on your tank specification and hang on back filtration if any. You can do it with regular scissors.

Egg crate is a good idea. I was thinking about that
