Yes, but I never seem to have any desire to do that since it gives the fish
more opportunity to jump out -- even the smallest hole or crack. An inch or two
freeboard lessens, but doesn't eliminate that. A truly tight lid is almost
impossible to feed 160 tanks every day -- it takes three hands and about five
minutes. Five times 160 is 800 minutes or over 13 hours.
