What about the rubber like stuff. Where all the flaps meet in the middle to create a one way hole for your arm to go then through. Tell me you know what i mean.......
Seriously, my fish are dying to get away from me.
Those are the only two jumpers I ever had and I think they were only days apart. The ropefish I expected, but the silver dollar surprised the crap out of me. Thank God my son and I were in the room when it happened, and heard him clunking around inside the stand (he ended up inside the stand, laying on the power bar) He seems fine now. Incredibly.

I think I know what you mean. Something like that would be great for when I'm filling and emptying. Then I would just need the ghetto towel trick (if that will even work) when I am doing the vacuuming (which is only a fraction of the extraction time). When I change the 55s I vacuum around the substrate the whole time, but the 220 takes so long to remove the water, I am only vacuuming for the first 5 or 10 minutes. The rest is a waiting game.
Damn jumpers. I was warned. I love the ropefish though, they're really active and make a lot of appearances during the day for a nocturnal fish.
