I bought clear mesh from Bulk Reef Supply. The window screen frame and ribbing from a local hardware store. A great improvement over egg create!

Thanks for the advice! I will look into that for the 120 I am starting. I noticed the heater turned on and nothing. I think that My issue is that I fill my water right to the edge and that gives them the chance to swim right to the edge and jump. So NO more! Plus he liked to perch on the sponges of my skimmer which were close to the top. That combined with the close proximity of the water is what I think made him jump.

Some fish just jump. I have a Blue Jaw Tile fish that is a real jumper. I had egg crate on my tank but it really cut the light. Then I covered the holes with plexiglas but water condensed on it so it was no better. Good luck!
