May i suggest a screen top? It will solve all the problems related to glass tops and still keep your fish it. It lets all light through and all gas. Bulkreefsupply sells supplies to make your own screen tops, i believe its much cheaper also. The better way to cover your tank for saltwater.

Nice! Does the saltwater beat the screen up pretty bad?

Nope, no reason it would. They sells a few different size screen and its a clear screen as well. Best option i have seen for saltwater, especially reef tanks.

If you have 3" open in the back, the jumpers will find their way out. So if you are looking for a solution to keep jumpers in, this isn't it.
