I bought tops to go with my 180 and they came with two pieces of acrylic on the outside tops. Without the acrylic theres a 2 inch gap between the filter and the top. Am I supposed to cut the acrylic to fit in between? Thanks for the help

Will that gap be bad for evaporation? And are reds known for jumping? Thanks for the replies.

Any suggestions on how to cut it. I dont have any saws or anything so should I just go to a hardware store and get them to cut it?
