Hi, I have a 5 gallon planted tank, I want to have a nerite in it along with some shrimp, its a rimless tank that i bought way back and I can't find the lid, I made a custom lid but its not tight-fitting, so any ideas on keeping it inside? Or like encouraging it? I've heard about applying Vaseline? Just need advice and ideas.

Maybe put some mesh over the gaps? I'd probably try taping down some old window screening. Cling wrap also works but doesn't stay on all that well over time.

Window screen was my first idea as well, just make sure it is well cleaned before cutting and attaching to your aquarium.
