View Full Version : IM Nuvo 40g mesh lid and jumpers

I hope you can help. Do you think the mesh lid on the Nuvo 40g would hold in jumpers, particularly a blue spotted jawfish? I knew I was going to have to block the sides (where the lid meets the glass) but I didn't think about the actual mesh. What do you think? Ive looked for glass lids but didn't find any. Ideas?

The default lids suck, both in fitting (gaps) and that mesh. I think a lot of people grab a window frame kit and 1/4 - 1/8" mesh, or what I do - black bridal tulle for better aesthetics.

Well, the BSJF answered my question and I have to say I am surprised. He/she actually jump out. Luckily I woke up super early and walked into the living room and I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or I startled him but I saw him jump out of the corner of my eye. I quickly plopped him back in. Not sure if he got thru the mesh or the gap in the sides. Now what??
