So, you put some planning in it to alleviate the possibility that a fishes nature can be bypassed?
Please share the particulars because I haven't met a fish that will not jump if they have a swim bladder. The do this naturally when breeding, as reaction to shadows across glass, aggression among con-specifics.
But, I am certainly willing to have my mind changed by your methods.
I find that most people that do not put lids on aquariums do it for aesthetics alone-- so their plants grow optimally with no loss of light from fixture. Most admit that and hope they dont find fish on the floor.
Edit: dont you have a discus tank? I thought I saw that you did? Maybe not. If so, do you have a lid on that tank?
