Changing the tank up...
I decided to stop with the African theme, at least in the choice of fish. I took out all of the Bolbitis heudelotti and few of the Nymphaea lotus, so now there is some swimming room.
I'll post some pics of the tank in the next week or so. In the time being these are some pics the seller, korwhord, took of the two bettas.

|Payara||I'm not running CO2 in the tank. I'll add a air pump. Thanks Tony|

|TLE041||It's definitely a sign of insufficient O2. Either turn off your CO2 at night or run an air pump on a timer.|

Question on low O2
I have noticed today that during the night, when the lights are off, a few shrimps climb up on top of the java moss island. It got me thinking is this due to low oxygen during the night? Also I have had a lot of lampeyes jump out of the tank and that too happened during the night. I do not have too much water surface agitation. Should I add aeration during the night? Or do you guys recommend some other alternative action?

|SearunSimpson||What about adding some micro rasboras? I've never had them jump before, and all my tanks I've ever kept have been open tops.|

|demonr6||The tank looks really good, the plants seem to have taken off well in there. Have you been adding anything to help the growth or is this just the tank running its course?|

|Newman||looks like mystery plant might be a crypt.|

|swoof||Your tank looks awesome. Love the lotus and the arrangement of all the plants and driftwood. Have you thought of getting a piece of Plexiglas cut for the top, something that can be cut around where the wood comes out to keep it somewhat covered. Just trying to be helpful|

|Payara||Just found the shrimp. He died 30 or 40 ft away from the tank in my living room. I wasn't even looking for him in there...|

Here some updated pics from last night:
I also got some unknown growth in my emersed java moss. Let me know if anyone knows what it is:
I'm getting rid of the 2211 because of insufficient and unreliable flow rates. I added a 2213 to my tank and have turned down the flow of it. I have decided to get a African Leaf Fish as my main display fish. Opinions and comments are welcomed.

Yeah I am not getting any killifish. I tried my hand in lampeyes, just to to see if they would jump before I got a more expensive killifish, all but 1 jumped out. The water is perfect, I think it's the sudden on and off of the lights, I even putt in floating plants, no luck. Good thing is they did breed for me and I have 6 babies. I'm going raise them to a lil bigger and then see if anyone wants them to enjoy in covered tank.
I'm at a loss at what to get right now...

The tank looks really nice. I like the arrangement of plants and driftwood. I'm thinking of re-scaping a portion of my tank and am enjoying looking at other's work!
For the killifish, IME a lot of them are jumpers and need a full lid (not even an open space at the back). They are a fun, colorful fish to keep if you can. Did you fully stock yet?
