Thinking about topless
I keep a small (10G) tank at work. One nickle sized angel, three albino cory cats, and one dwarf puffer on snail duty. MGO, capped with mixed gravel. Lots of stem plants. Aquaclear 20, keeping the water clear, a 20" Fugeray keeping it bright. No bubbles and no CO2.
The plants are growing nice and slow, but they are reaching the top. All are cuttings from my large tank at home. I was thinking about taking the top off, but worry about the fish making a jump for it. I had a betta jump once.
I think the puffer, and the angel will be ok, but the cory cats tend to be more excited.
Any advise from those that have let the plants grow past the water line.
