Bettas are notorious for jumping, so most people want to keep a lid on their tank. (although the issue with fish jumping into the return is an issue specific to the biocube) Some bettas never jump, but it only takes once to have a dead pet on your hands. :(

She is only half an inch long and i didn't fill it up all the way, i left 3 inches. I have a saltwater aquarium too and have had jumpers with my custom made top so i know the risk I'm just waiting until she is a little bigger and then i will add something but I'm not too worried yet :) i just got her yesterday

I don't see an issue with heat however I do expect that the top craft mesh may become warped due to the lights being so close to it.

I made a mesh top for my saltwater aquarium and these are the supplies used and they don't warp:

That's a different material than the one used here, however.

That's what I was saying :) this one might work better, especially since I have a Radion light on the saltwater tank and the top for a year and it hasn't warped.
