maybe I'll keep it then.
It's such an inexpensive tank, even after buying the hood separately.

I'd still be weary of a fish jumping out of that spot. I would go with the plastic, great ventilation and would cost you maybe $2.

The bulb heats, not the lamp. Get those compact spirals, they don't heat the water like the regular bulbs do :) I have these in my smaller tanks (hoods are actually closer to the water than a lamp will be) for my plants.

this question is for anyone with a mini bow 2.5. Does it come with gravel and/or a plant? I heard the overall thing is amazing.

I know this is an old thread but since I just ordered some hoods for my 2.5 gallon tanks, I thought I would post the link. I HOPE they are what I was looking for, and not just a part of what I needed. (I googled "Perfecto Manufacturing 2.5 gallon Hood" and found it on this OnlinePetDepot.com site.)

and here is what looks like a plain screen cover for a 2.5 rectangular tank.

(I noticed when I was looking for a photo of the hood that a few threads on different websites came up looking for this product and not a lot of people finding it.)

It doesn't come with either.
I love mine, though... partly because I got it on sale for $20... Whatever the full price is might be a little crazy though. $40? Blech :/ I also don't like the filter that came with it, even though baffled it's pretty gentle. Love the tank itself, though, it looks AWESOME.

I have this tank with the glass hood and light. I simply have te glass slightly off to the side so the airtube, and cords can have a space. NO problems with it or fish jumping out !
