That's not it.
I had that problem when setting the tank/filter up because the tube was waaay too long and hitting the bottom of the tank and pushing everything up so I couldn't put the top of the filter on.
I cut about 3/4 of it off and am just using a tiny piece.
It's still not closing. I think the grips are too tight and I'm hoping they will loosen up in time and the lid will eventually close fully.
It doesn't affect the aquarium at all and I know he couldn't get out but it just bugs me so much. I am a perfectionist when it comes to weird details like that that don't go right.
