- No lid or hood sold with it, purchased separately and available online at a site called, "Pet Solutions". It is a drop-in wrap around full hood, it doesn't have any fittings to secure it, but it is a snug fit. However, it would not stop an escape artist like an octopus from getting out. It would keep small jumping koi in, but even a lobster going through a molting phase would probably be motivated enough to push the hood open in hopes of finding a different, hidden location to go through the vulnerable molting. Also, the plastic hood has areas that can be cut out for placement of filter(s), etc. All of which should be installed as tightly as possible.by PleasantPain2/14/2016Was this answer helpful?

- No lid. Buy the one that is sold separately. I think its about 4 dollars and it fits perfectly.by jet360dog9/6/2016Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- No the lid is seperate. The lid I got also from walmart.com is secure but a little tricky to lock down. I suggest going to a petsmart or pet shop to look at the lids and choose from there.by ratequeen4/18/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It does'nt come with a lid, but if you are using it for reptiles they have a lid for it in the same area where you would have found the tank. It has a screen top and two little hatches you can open to gain access inside. It also has little locks on the edges to secure it to the top of the tank. They're about 5-7 bucks.by RickyOBobby2/23/2015Was this answer helpful? (6) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Not how many, but how much. Rule of thumb for basic setups is one inch of fish or equivalent per gallon. 10 gallons = 10 inches of fish. So, ten 1 inch fish, OR one 10 inch fish, OR 2 one and a half inch fish with 1 seven inch eel (or whatever) for a total of 1 inch per gallon, etc. Usually invertebrates are NOT factored into this formula, shrimp, snails, etc. Those types of critters are able to exist in overpopulated environments with little threat to their livelihood. Main concerns with tank occupancy are adjusting beneficial bacterial levels (so water toxins remain constant and don't fluctuate), amount and type of dissolved gasses (so suffocation or retardation doesn't occur, even during midnight power loss), and selecting a suitable community of co-habitable fish. Factors to consider should include, optimum temperature levels, food types and frequency of feeding required, behaviour type, preferred swimming depth, and specific environmental concerns; such as, needing smooth sediment to avoid bodily injury OR rough sediment to encourage burrowing behavior and trap floating food for bottom feeders, etc.by PleasantPain8/5/2016Was this answer helpful?

- look at the fish you going to buy at pets mart if it says 1-10 gallons then you can buy it. it says how you can buy of that kind of that fish that would work best.by ALTHEPAL558/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (1) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- A basic rule of thumb is one inch of fish (adult size) per gallon of water. The larger the fish, the fewer you can have. So you could have ten 1-inch fish or five 2-inch fish or three 3-inch fish. This is assuming you have an adequate filter and do frequent partial water changes.by Chiaroscuro8/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- it is recommended that you have no more then 10 fish in that tank the general rule is 1in per fish per gallon. so if you get a fish that grows 3in long, 5 in, and 2in you can only have three fish. hope this helpsby FishGuy178/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (2) (4)Was this answer helpful?
- TKAB is right. 1 gallon of water per inch of fish... for fish 3 inches in length and less. For fish greater than 3 inches in length, 2 gallons of water per inch of fish. Keep in mind that this rule is general. Some fish need more space depending on their territoriality, energy level, body shape/size, and waste production. For example, goldfish require more space than your typical tropical fish, mostly because they produce so much waste. One fancy goldfish (in other words, the kind with fancy fins and strange body shapes) requires 29 gallons all to itself. And as for Tiger Barbs, they need a longer tank so that they can zip around. Think of them as a high-energy dog who needs a big yard to run in! It pays to do your research on the species you purchase. Every one will have its own specific individual needs.by RainyGray9/8/2016Was this answer helpful? (6) (3)Was this answer helpful?
- General rule is 1 inch of fish for every gallon. For example. 5 fish that are 2" long.by TKAB8/5/2016Was this answer helpful? (9) (5)Was this answer helpful?
- Does not come with lid, purchased separately. Roughly $27 for the 10 gallon hood. Includes a single light with ballast suitable to operate with a plug-in timer. HOWEVER, there are "tank toppers" for critters in an aquarium. Essentially, adding a second story upper level extending outside the aquarium top, but enclosed in critter friendly wire-mesh/bars. This gives the added perk of being rearranged when desired, keeping your critter's interest, and giving you an extra level of habitable space with multiple critters. One useful feature is the spacing of the floor rods, generous enough to allow feces to fall to the bottom and collect in the aquarium for easy cleaning, but close enough where little paws (except the tiniest) don't slip through and accidentally injure your pet. I would recommend removing the inside silicon aquarium seal carefully with a razor blade. This will prevent an unwitting hamster from eating the seal, and meeting an untimely fate. Just a precaution.by PleasantPain11/5/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It would be great for hamsters. It doesn't come with a lid but it is very tall. Your hamsters probably couldn't escape unless you have something tall in there that they could climb.by Monicadarling9/17/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- No you have to buy the lid seperatly for 7 bucks.by Drake998/27/2012Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It's perfectly safe for hamsters but you do need to purchase a lid. Walmart sells lids for about $8 but I recommend getting the $12 lids (ask for the ones for 'reptiles') that cover the aquarium rather than sit in it (sorry hard to explain).by Hamsterfish8/17/2012Was this answer helpful?
