Hey Inga, is that green cabomba you have floating at the top of the tank? I have heard people using that as a floating plant. I would like to have something floating just so there is not so much direct light as i get yellow spots on some of my plants and i think the fish would probably like some shade, even thought there is some heavily shaded areas near the bottom/back of the tank.
what I am wondering is if you have thick cover like that on the surface, how does the filter pump work so far as breaking the surface water to allow oxygenation of the water? thats the purpose of the filter pumping onto the surface no?
