If you can, buy plastic egg crate (its in the lighting section at places like Home Depot) and put that on top. Its better than glass because it allows better oxygen exchange, but the holes are small enough that nothing is gonna jump out.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It won't help evaporation much, but it will save jumpers from getting out.

I will say though some fish just find a way to become land lovers anyway!
