I have a 10 gallon tank with 2 openings in the back lid for the filter and heater. I'm concerned that when I get my guppies that they will jump out of those spaces. What is the best type of material to cover the openings and where would I purchase it from?
You might be able to use aluminum foil to cover the holes, as it can be shaped easily (attached across the back lid and the tank wall). I have 2 guppies and although they swim at the top level of the tank, I have never experienced them jumping before.
Fancying the fish world!
I would be surprised to see a guppy jump out of a tank. But if you are looking for something a little more durable than aluminum foil, then take a piece of cardboard and fit it over your hole and cut out a pattern. Then take it to a local glass store and have them cut a piece of 1/16" plexi glass using your pattern as a sample. It will cost less than $5 and you don't have to worry about messin up the aluminum foil.
