I currently have baby Oriental goldfish in the tank with a few bamboos. I plan on upgrading to bigger tank or pond later though. As of now, I just have secured desk lamp that shines on the tank. It's kinda hard to explain how it's like. I'm a bit on budget as I spent it on the filter and substrate. So, I don't want to buy it now, if it's not necessary. So, is the hood necessary?
Also, thanks for the reply.
