Had my first jumper

As the title states I had my first jumper tonight lost one of my yellow tailed damsel fish stripped the whole tank looking for him and couldn't find him had a look all over the floor around the tank and couldn't find him later on I found him in some of my tubing that I use to vac the tank with and to use to drip acclimate the fish he was dried up in there it's pretty upsetting but hey what can I do now :/ ill be going to buy some egg crate on the weekend and hope my other yellow tail doesn't jump on the bright side I done a full re scape of my tank and I am finally satisfied with it the tank to me looks a little murky but that's because the sand got disturbed

I know, I don't have a good camera, just my phone. So my pics are not as nice as others. I don't post many pics for that reason.

Egg crate is a bit unpleasant to look at. Strongly suggest running to a hardware store and picking up a cheap piece of acrylic or plexi-glass. Cut to fit!

The tank needs to breath so I wouldn't recommend a plexi or glass top. Check out BRS, they sell a kit that uses a clear mesh. Works great.

I would get the DIY screen cover kits from BRS. Eggcrate will reflect a lot of light back onto your lights
