    Innovative Marine Universal Lid Clips for Rimless Aquariums 5mm

    Bought some clips on ebay for my five gallon Aqua Japan so I could put a small glass lid on the tank to keep the fish from jumping out and to protect the light. I've discovered if the waterline touches the clips.....they "wick" the water up and over the side of the aquarium.

    Anyone else have this issue?....and if so....anyone have a solution?

    The clips go about 3/4" down into the tank...really don't want a 3/4" dead space at the top of my aquarium.

    Try cutting them down some at the part that goes down into the aquarium. I haven't had that issue with clips but I have with the glass thermometers that hang on over rim of tanks. I hate those **** thermometers.

    Interesting. I am not sure but you might also try a very thin smear of silicone across to see if it acts like a gasket? You could always peel it off if it doesn't work.
