Mine haven't tried to escape and I have openings they can fit through, so I don't think it will be a problem for you

The colors will look really good in your tank. Post pics when you have got it finished would love to see. Your set up is really cool!

Thanks, only recently set up so will be a while before fish are added. Will def post pics. In the photo show water level low but had to fill and cover inlet pipe as the glass lid was allowing condensation to drip town the sides of the tank 😡 any ideas for some sort of sealant that won't prevent we from removing the glass lid.
