I have the top, if I use it my temp rises to 85. I'm saving up for a chiller. My six line doesn't go anywhere near the top. All he does is swim through the rocks and eats. But each fish is different. Like I have a puffer living with crabs and starfish in harmony.

Gobies jump, wrasses jump and blennies. Some fish naturally swim downwards when their "fight or flight" kicks in but these fish swim straight up. Rimless look really cool but i've even had a clown jump. I put a lid on mine aftet that, my tank had too much action around it (dog, cat, kids, ect)

BRS sells a clear plastic mesh that is strong and blocks almost zero light. A frame can be made to hold this mesh on a rimless tank that would keep the fish in and preserve the clean look.

Not known to, but in the right circumstances almost anything but a clam might jump...

Given your tank plans, I'd rule out any tang.

Tangs need a ton of swimming room, they never stop moving. Plus since your starting off fresh get small cheap fish like damsels or blue chromis. Nice and hardy. Tangs get ich easily.

Puffers aren't really jumpers, but most of them are questionable at best at being reef safe. Most are solitary, aggressive fish. You'd probably do alright with some chromis, and have u considered sand sifting inverts, maybe seastars, or perhaps sea dragons?
