    Double carpet surfers

    I've been running with glass tops on my tanks since I started the hobby. This has allowed me to use wooden canopies to hang my lights from. Recently I've decided to use the LED light hanging kits that my ReefBreeders came with so I can ditch the clunky canopies. Unfortunately this means that I had to ditch the glass tops as well. I altered my top off reservoir to account for the additional evaporation without too much hassle. Then came the issue of covering the tanks. I didn't want to have a completely open top because I have jumping fish in there and also three young kids that could potentially throw things into the tanks. I wanted to use screen kits with bird net but due to both the side brackets of my LED's and external overflow boxes, there was no real way to do this. In the end I opted to just use eggcrate. It may block light, but it blocks a lot less than the glass typically did. Beyond this, the increased gas exchange from open tops seems to have made the coral a lot happier. Overall I've been pretty happy with the transition. Then I woke up this morning to a purple firefish on the floor and our black headed jawfish cooking on top of the eggcrate. I'm bummed. I knew it was a risk but didn't really think they'd make it through the gaps. The majority of our fish are smaller ones, but there's quite a few. It's become evident in recent months that I needed to let the herd thin itself out and once the bioload was decreased I could replace them with fewer, larger fish. It still sucks losing them to the carpet.
