How am I going to cover this thing?

So I am upgrading, to a 2.5 gallon drum. How am I going to cover it? I don't want it to look ugly.... Could I maybe find Tupperware that would fit? Make one? I dunno...

I tape saran wrap over my kritter keepers, and poke holes in the top for air. The heat from the water (if your water is heated) will cause humidity on the underside, which is good for a betta's labyrinth organ. I feed the pellets through the holes (and if I miss, it's funny watching them jump at the sight of food just out of reach lol). That way you can get natural light in, help the labyrinth and easy feeding =)

You could also go to any home improvement store (Home Depot, Lowes) and buy a piece of clear Lexan. only problem you might have is cutting it to fit the shape you need.

Usually a small sheet is less than $10.00
