Introduction

JumpGuard DIY Aquarium Cover

There is nothing worse than coming down in the morning to finding your favourite fish lying crispy on the carpet.

Many fish, especially wrasse, have a tendency to jump from the tank when frightened or chased by another fish and so a solution to preventing the loss of such fish should be high on every fish keepers priority list.

D-D Jumpguard covers are a very lightweight, sleek, low visual impact and easy to construct screen cover suitable for most aquarium types, specifically designed to prevent fish loss due to jumping whilst maintaining high light penetration.

Light Penetration

For those concerned with loss of light penetration into your reef tanks, we tested light levels with a Apogee MQ-200 meter and got the following results:

  • PAR without cover around 390 - 400
  • PAR with cover around 380 - 390
  • Approximately a 2.5% reduction in light with no shadowing at all.
