Hey Oldfishlady...

I adore your planted tanks! Do you have any problems with fish jumping out because they are open topped? I am thinking because they are so heavily planted the fish don't even bother with a jail break but do you use screens of some sort?

Oh. Darn. I was looking through her posts and found this:
I have mine open top so I get good light penetration to the plants-Lights are about 3-4 inches above the water line. I stay on a 12h/day photoperiod in the warmer months and 10h in the cooler months for best plant growth.
By looking at her photos I can see light bars but not really hoods. I was just wondering if she had any jumpers.

Jumpers can be stopped by lowering the water level to at least three inches below the top.
