How to avoid fish jumping out on rimless tanks?
I was curious for you guys with rimless tanks (and don't use a top) do you guys do anything special to make sure fish don't jump out?
I ask because I have a 10.5 gallon rimless tank that looks a lot better without a top on but I keep having fish jump out. In the past it was siamese algae eaters, threadfin rainbows, and today I tried going with the top and my espei rasboro jumped out. Thankfully I got to him before he completely died and I think he'll make a recovery (he's swimming well back in his school).
I lowered the top of the water level from 1.5cm to 2cm and am going to try getting a lily pipe that pushes water from the front left to see if that makes a difference. The back of the tank has floating plants so it's just the front that is a concern.
I wonder how the iwagumi/ada styled tanks deal with fish not accidentally jumping out? I guess it matters on the type of fish in there (as the fish that have jumped out are known jumpers haha -- guess I answered my own question) but still I've seen setups with fish that can jump living in tanks with even higher water levels!
