I was worried about the water force coming out would be too much but when its turned down all the way its just right. So the tank does have a filter now and water movement. I agree that the warmer temps and plant use could be killing the O2 levels and swinging the pH. Wish I had my old testing equipment. With the new filter, open tank, and agitation, hopefully the summer warmth can be mitigated some. Im thinking about a small heater for the winter but all I have seen so far are ones that only have a set temp and no adjustment. Maybe these changes will make it more appealing. Pygmy corys were a thought but the old Flourite pieces are murder on their barbels so no go there. Have to be something other than scuds.

They tolerate a wide range and with the cooling of the water movement and no top they might work. The blues did fine until the summer and I have had some reds in the big tank which has consistently been warmer than it should. Might have to get some from you at the Christmas party
