    Hey all! I just got my tire Track Eel, I love him so much, but I have noticed he loves to jump, when they are small like mine is I find it hard to keep them from escaping through gaps in the lid for wires, or the filter. Does anyone have a suggestion for how to cover these areas, or just stopping him from jumping?

    you cant stop a natural instinct of a fish, but you might want to secure the hood by placing some weights on it

    Tape some Saran wrap over the openings, that might work. And I agree with the weighted too, unless the problem is wiggling out.
