Jumpguard DIY Aquarium Cover Pro
There is nothing worse than coming down in the morning to finding your favourite fish lying dead and crispy on the carpet.
Many fish, especially wrasse, have a tendency to jump from the tank when frightened or chased by another fish and so a solution to preventing the loss of such fish should be high on every fish keepers priority list.
D-D Jumpguard covers are a very lightweight, sleek, low visual impact and easy to construct screen cover suitable for most aquarium types, specifically designed to prevent fish loss due to jumping whilst maintaining high light penetration.
Available in the following versions and are designed to be cut to size:
- TC7575 – 75cm x 75cm
- TC12075 – 120cm x 75cm
- TC18075 – 180cm x 90cm
Included in the kit
The Jumpguard Tank Cover is designed sit neatly inside the top lip of the aquarium glass, with all items supplied oversized to allow you to cut to fit your own aquarium.
The rigid corner and extrusion design creates a very solid frame and is easily cut to the size of your aquarium.
Features of the NEW Jumpguard Tank Cover
The special extruded aluminium profile is now shaped with a lip which sits directly onto the edge of the glass, removing the requirement for any additional clips or brackets. The section is extruded then powder coated in a tough, low sheen black finish for greater scratch resistance and greater aesthetics.
The lower section of the corners is specifically designed so that it does not interfere with the silicone bead in the corners of your tank which gives a tight fit to the glass with no gaps. It also makes it easier and neater to cut off the corner if you want to bring wires out at the back of the tank for pumps and heaters
For those concerned with loss of light penetration into your reef tanks, we tested light levels with a Apogee MQ-200 meter and got the following results:
PAR without cover around 390 – 400 • PAR with cover around 380 – 390 • Approximately a 2.5% reduction in light with no shadowing at all.
