Comments I found that with a tank with as little surface area as this one can only handle 2-3bps tops before fish show signs of stress. Even with it being 47 gallons.

I have a 37gal, pretty tall as well. I have the same experience with the CO2. Although I should have more dissolved in the water (CO2 indicator makes it to green, but not lime green as some recommend), if bubble rate is increased fish behave strange (not necessarily gasping, but had some jumpers, or my chocolate gouramies hang at the top). You have my vote. Very nice!

It's fantastic! The height of the plants and layout were well done! Five stars!
