im sure you could go to lowes and pick up some screening (for like a screen door) then make a frame the width and length of your tank. im actually thinking about this myself.

Look in my sig for a screening you can purchase and make a virtually translucent top. As for the jawfish, yellowhead's seem to be more fragile and less robust than others.

Hmm never heard that about the jawfish...I just heard they usually die jumping. Any reason they less hardy? Are they real dependent on water quality, food, etc? I really want to try one and the other jawfish get too big for me. As for the netting that looks good Thanks!

Pretty much as I previously said, more fragile because they do not attain the robust size of other species. IME they also tend to hide more because of this; They are more cautious so you have to make sure they are getting enough food whereas other, larger jawfish will come right out of their hole/hiding to capture food.

+1 To innovator. I've heard this from multiple sources about the yellow head jawfish and the pearl jawfish.

Well I am still going to give the yellowhead/pearly a try. It will be all I have for a little so I can focus on getting it food and settled in for a bit before I get anything else I really have to tend to. Thanks for the warning though. Its never easy to tell what fish are hardy or not and its nice to have a heads up by people who know.
