I got 3 of these guys over the weekend, so far so good all looks well. How tight of a lid do i need to be concerned with? Will these guys try to escape through cut outs in the plastic rear piece on my aqua glass top? I have things taped up, just in case and thought to post this and see what experienced folks have to say.

20g 3 praecox rainbows, 1 Skunk botias,

90g 7 boesemani, 2 irian rainbows, 2 turquoise rainbows,   7 yoyo loach, 12 Pangio kuhli, 8 oblonga kuhli, 5 zebra loach, 4 clown loaches, 1 rainbow shark, 3 denison barbs.

Amano shrimp will march up your sleeve and right into your hair.  They *think* they are terrestrial at times.  However, I have never taken, or had to take extra precautions to keep them in the tanks, just have to be very, very careful if I ever have to net them and move them.  They are very adept out of the water.
Take care,
