Had my 2nd goby jump out of my tank yesterday. I wasn’t home so he was crispy when I found him. I see clear lids kraken lids and a few others. What would you recommend for a new Red Sea e max 260

Also any recommendations for swapping the stop return nozzle. I want more directional flow

I have Kraken on both tanks(RS XL200, custom 80g) and the quality is on point. The custom order had me worried about fitment, but Josh knows what he's doing. You won't be disappointed going with Kraken.

For flow, look into VCA or any of the knockoffs on etsy.

Did you add the feeding holes?

Seem to be reasonably priced and a lot of good reviews on them.

I have a kraken on my figi cube. Added feed hole and got the cup that goes in. If you get the cup you don’t need the cover for feed hole. Get the cup. Works fantastic.

I used clearview lids and got a pisces EXO for my waterbox, add feeding ports and customized cutouts for my light fixtures that attach to the back of the tank. Very happy with the lid, been using if for ~2 years.

I bought the red sea one from brs and made it. Put 2 feed holes in it. Looks solid. Best of all if want some changes i can just chuck it and buy another without beatin myself up because they are relatively cheap.

I created my own lid using this:


I also changed the netting to black because I didn't like the clear look.
