The otos I had were pretty good at hiding, if you can't find a body it's probably around somewhere.

I hope that is the case. But I turned on the powerhead just to see if an oto might shoot out and its now making a loud noise. Hopefully I didn't chop the little guys up. I plugged it up with filter material so the last wouldn't swim in..maybe ill unplug it just in case. My ammonia and nitrites are still 0. If I had a dead fish would these go up?

Not likely, as you have plants. They can assimilate a lot of ammonia, including sudden minor increases such as a dead fish or two.

Good call on the lower temp bulb, gave it a much more natural look, will be even better once your floating plants fill in.

I really am not liking this water sprite in attempt to make it float.. it hangs down way too far in the water and I just dont like it.

I just planted some vals and im wondering if I should just wait for it to grow to cover the surface for some shade.. or if I should buy something like frogbit or water lettuce and let it do the job for me. Any ideas?

What about pennywort or duckweed to float across the top?
