    Default Pink Spotted Goby Jumping?

    I was just wondering if I should worry about my pink spot goby jumping out of the tank. I have a 24 gallon aquapod and I hate using the top. I'd rather not use it but it's not worth it if he jumps out. Ane suggestions/experiences?

    I think jumping is always a risk no matter what the species. But some are more definitely more apt to do it than others.

    I'm going to be working on a top for my biocube soon (before I stock it).

    Yeah I know but I just hate using that glass top with a passion. It gets dirty fast and it a pain to take on and off. So it's a hard decision to make.

    if I remember correctly gobys are on the low end of risk for jumping
    I have been reefing from 08-2007 till 5-2011

    reef tanks are like wifes you have to give them some attention every now and then

    current tank is an 80g FW containing Oscars

    I do...it might be tough to make an exact fitting frame for the aquapod without having one in front of me though. Those have a bow front, right?

    Let me see how it goes with my biocube...if that works out I can have you send a template for the shape of the top.
