Netting in a Top

http://www.joann.com/nylon-net-72-many-colors/prd7200/

Found this, would this be fine for a net that keeps jumpers in the tank?

I guess that could work. . . do you have an open topped tank? It seems like it would be difficult to keep on the tank, and still be able to get in to do maintenance. . .

Nothing keeps fish (and water) in a tank like a glass top. For an "open" top tank, I would use egg crate, as is would be much easier to manage. If the holes are too big, then some nylon mesh can be attached to that, rather than the tank itself, making maintenance easier.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Problem is that I'm going to hold a tire-track eel which are notorious for escaping through tight cracks

Then you need a glass top.

Glass tops aren't fitting this tank, every size is either too small or too large

Aqueon, and before anyone says they make a top for it, I bought it and it didn't fit, left a .25 in in the front and back and the length was extremely lose. Almost knocked it into the tank
