Bahaha XD

If there are 1-inch or 3/4-inch gaps at the front and back of the tank, is that enough room for the filter/heater cord and air to get at the surface while still discouraging jumping? Or is it kind of a cross your fingers and hope it works out fine type of thing?

Mine comes all the way to the front, but is 2" narrower than the tank so all the hardware just fits in the back 2" gap. I feed through the back gap too - the fish don't seem to care.

I've never had any jumpers, but I keep neons, pencilfish, rams, and plecos, and have lots of floating plants. I kind of figure they'd have to have *really* good aim to make it through the gap specifically.

When I get a bit of time I'm definitely looking into this kind of lid for both my tanks.

I'll probably remove the lids to feed so that I don't accidentally train my betta to have aim that good. :P

Yeah, with your light set-up it would be easy to just lift the glass off. I've got two ten-gallon light hoods sitting on top of mine on the 30 gallon - ghetto all the way, baby. I mean, DIY of course.
