Open top or covered top plant tank????

And one other disadvantage for an open top tank for California residents. 

I had an open top glass tank sitting next to a closed and covered 
plexiglass tank when the Northridge earthquake hit. The closed top 
stopped water from sloshing out, and also acted as a baffle which stopped 
the tank from walking.

The open tank lost 1/3 of it's water, several fish ended up sitting on my 
couch, and it walked several inches further on it's stand.

And with all of the recent activity in Northern California, who knows?
