What are people doing for pond tops with fish that can jump out. . I'm working on a pond project and want something nice looking to keep fish from jumping out. Its going to be 8' round pond.

I use a pond netting to cover my fiberglass tank. I got it on ebay. I attach it using those 3m clips but instead if the sticky pads they come with i decided to glue them in place every 12" or so. Been in use for over a yr now. Has a few tears most likey from the aro grabbing any bugs that land in it. I cut the netting to fit with extra that folds over the sides. Easy to secure and to remove if necessary. The mesh is fine enough that when i view it from my wifi cameras it looks as if there is nothing there....I did order a new one. Waiting for it to arrive. Its cheap and effective imo. My tank is 1500 gal..8 ft cylinder thats 4 ft tall. Made of 1/2" fiberglass with a 4x2 window.

Thanks! Yeah the view into the pond is one of the things I’m worried about. I want to be able to see in it nicely without having to take covers off. I’ll have to look that netting up.
