I thought since everyone has been so helpfull and supportive I should try to get a picture of the tank. Not quite the quality I wanted, but that's what happens when you have IAL leaves darkening the water, lots of floating plants blocking the lights even more, and especially with the use of a camera phone.
When I said "fill to the top" I actually meant almost fill to the top. I had to leave a 1-2inch gap so that I could fit the styrofoam cup (which I took out this morning). And the reason why the thermometer is sort of out there is because I was trying to make room for the styrofoam cup.
