And also because I have cats. I can just see one of them jumping to the top without realizing that there is no top.
I think if I had a cat, I'd be sportin' the cover too! Maybe it's all the cartoons when I was a kid...

I don't use a cover. They do block some light, especially when they get dirty. I am careful not to spray anything near my tanks though. I love the open top look, plus it makes everything easier such as feeding, dosing ferts, etc.

Sweet, thanks for the reply! ...I think I, too, will skip the cover.
