Well thank you for the tip! And yes, greetings from across the river! I dove headfirst into this world and am liking it, I love learning and looking to learn more! I think my heater's not strong enough for the ambient temperature of the house to bring up into the 80's though. It's stuck between 74-76 degrees.

Not sure if someone said this already but use some plastic wrap over the wire. It will hold in head and humidity and stop him from jumping. Leave like 2 or 3 little squares or corners uncovered

Pog - I have plastic wrap over my tank and it isn't weak. I have a tiny gap at the front of the tank and it gets enough oxygen and prevents my fish from jumping out. It's natural tension where it sticks to the side of the tank keeps it strong.
