I had a glass top but this didnt do to well because it wouldn't let the evaporated water pass and it was a mess. I did my first DIY project making 2 screens but they ended up being fat and not fitting under my lights.. Going to have to re do it lmao. I get what you mean :P

Juan - I had the same problem with my glass top. I just ordered this screen top kit from BRS...

Looks like a good product that could solve your fish jumping concerns.

I've had a dwarf lion for a few weeks and he's awesome! Safe for the reef and is ok for 55 gallon as he doesn't swim much. Feeding is a bit of an issue if he won't accept frozen (mine wont) so i have to feed him live for now.

Not if the tomato clown is regular size. I have a clownfish in my tank that is still a baby and he hasn't touched it. The Lion will eat any fish that fits in its mouth but if it's too big he just leaves it be.

Yeah my little guy is regular size about 3 inch he's also hosting a GBTA so I doubt the lion fish will attack him.
