i have a cover over my tank but there is a space in the back where the filters, heaters, air pump are, and ive never had any fish jump out.

Not even an eel

im not sure what you mean with the wood.
what kind of cover do you have on the tank now?

Still, you need to be careful. The evaporation and humidity created from the tank can cause the wood to mold and possibly warp eventually. You would not want that.

I have a plastic hood with a light, but there is an opening in the corner for the filter, and so there is a tiny space in between the filter and lid, and my fish found a way to hop through!

you can cut a piece of eggcrate to size. that would be pretty easy. or if all else fails, just tape it up. thats probably the easiest solution. youre definitely better off with this then wood

Eggcrate is not edible... It is a fluorescent light diffuser that you can purchase at like Home Depot or Lowes. Just basically a bunch of plastic squares put together, but it is one of the most useful things you will find.
