Hi guys,

I have a 30cm cube with no lid, it was initially stocked with guppy’s who all committed suicide? Are there any small fish which are less likely to jump?

Thanks a lot

I have two lidless NanoCubes that house shrimp only.

It's also possible that the glass lid for a 30l Dennerle NanoCube would fit (they measure 30x30x35cm, but obviously the height is not relevant here). ProShrimp sells them in the UK and Aquasabi also have them. The provided clips are intended for a tank with curved front corners, but it's easy enough to buy clips for any glass thickness on Amazon.

I’m surprised your guppies are jumping :(
Are they perhaps being startled?
Given good water conditions (and guppies are quite tolerant - though they do prefer harder water over very soft water) guppies are unlikely jumpers ... though I suppose if tank is filled to the rim, a relatively small movement can lead to “fish over the edge” :wideyed:

Thanks all, I may explore the glass lid. Currently I have put some egg crate on the tank as a temp measure.

May also toy with the floating plants.

I think you are right it could be a case of the fish getting startled but it must be something at night as that’s when they jump. A lid might just be the best option
