Aquariums and Cats...
Seeing as how we are finally taking the steps forwards to getting an apartment sooner rather than later, I'm now faced with a dilemma: what to do about my open top tank and my cats.
As of right now, neither one of my cats can live inside with me (Dad's house, Dad's rules), so I've never had either of them around the tanks for very long. My 29g is the only open top, and it's also my "baby", so I'd like to keep the cats out of it. I also want this tank to be my decor piece (as it's the tank I've put the most effort in), placed proudly in the living area of the apartment, so keeping the cats locked away from it is a no-go.
I can't remember them ever being a problem with the hooded tanks, and I'm probably worrying too much. However, I've put at least a grand into my 29g. I don't want to wake up to a traumatized wet cat and lights in the water. Thinking about it, just putting the tank away from anything else they can jump on to get to the tank might help, but I've seen cats jump heights I'd think they shouldn't be able to.
I'd like to hear what other people have done with cats and their tanks. Some ideas could really help me out...
