Is all your piping for the jets under glass? I don't see the piece of glass you're talking about.

For a anyone that's asking; all the PVC pipe that you see that is colored black is painted with Krylon fusion spray paint.
The top part of the big PVC pipe is basically a skimmer. What I did is I went to a craft store and bought plastic mesh that is meant for needlepoint sewing. I don't know what the hell needlepointselling is but that's where I got it and I glued it on the top so the fish wouldn't get sucked down the overflow intake.
