You don't have a real unruly jungle aquarium until your fish jumps out of the water and lands on the plants the the top of the tank and can't get back in the water. It is funny, but I actually had that happen in my 75 gallon tank when I first started attempting to make it into a planted tank. My hornwort grew so fast and furiously that I actually had to pick a fish off the top of it at one point and put it back in the water. It might have eventually flopped around til it got back in......but maybe not.

I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.
