question :what kind of cover for the ADA tanks

I dont want any fish jumping out but when I view the ADA cubes and all glass type tanks I only read about some kind of stainless J hooks for a top cover. They dont show any covers. What does every one use? Id like to use a cover.Also cant I use a hang on back filter for these ADA glass tanks?

If you want it to be more ADA like, just choose fish that are not as likely to jump.

I keep different types of tetras, rasboras, cories, ram, cherry barbs, platies, BN, and an Angelfish plus more in open top tanks without problems. Stay away from most loaches, Hatchets, and other very top dwelling fish if you are scared of jumpers.

From the pictures I've seen, the ADA tanks are open top (or atleast the majority of them).

Thanks Footbeat! Where are you on Long Island?

I had a differant ADA web site that didnt show these products . I guess you dont want to hang an ugly HOB filter. These tanks are amde for in line canisters so its un obtrusive-right? I work in Wantagh but live up in Old Bethpage
