    This is the gap between the hood and the filters. What are peoples opinions about the likeliness for hatchets to jump out of the tank? If this well work I'd like to go with hatchets.

    Hatchets jump if they're scared and cornered or if you got tasty snacks flying around. They will feel a lot more secure if you add some kind of floating plant or deven a few that just grow to the surface.

    If you do go for hatchets, do quarantine and do a preventive course against intestinal parasites.

    I think hatchets are my best option but I need to figure out a way to block that hole. At least my LFS got a good shipment of rams in that I'll get one in a few days if they look good.

    You can custom cut a piece of gridded plastic sheet. With a little patience, you could even cut tabs to hang down into the tank for a little "tightness" You can get the gridded plastic at any w-mart or craft store. Or have a piece of glass cut to fit.
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without

    +1 to the making one out of plastic, maybe even egg crate. If there is a way, they will jump out... at least at some point
