yellow watchman goby

I have read that they are jumpers. Do I need to have the tank completely covered. The back of my tank has a large opening because of my prizm skimmer. I can't get my glass cover to completely cover the tank. I plan on cutting the glass top so it can cover more of the tank or get a better skimmer. Maybe a bakpak. I relly like the yellow watchman but I don't want the fish to jump out.

If you put a glass cover over your top then you stand to possibly have a lower PH due to poor gas exchange on your surface. Alot of people use eggcrate.

I do not have a top on my tank and have kept a yellow watchma for over two years. It always stays on the bottom of the tank. Not an issue.

FishFrik,
I got my eggcrate at Home Depot, or you might try Lowes.....I think it was only a few $s.
