Splash tray #1
Hi,
Just a quick question I have a new tank -2 wks old and have 2 plants and 6 Beacons, all seems to be going good no casualties after a week of fish so far! And have had my first water change. Basically my tank is hexagonal and came with a splash tray, should I keep the tray? As Im worried that not enough o2 will be getting into the water as my water level is right up to the splash tray thus sealing the tank? Any other tips will be most appreciated too. Thanks Louise

Re: Splash tray #2
Hi Louise,
You can remove the splash/condensation tray only if you don't have a light fitting in the hood, otherwise the fitting will eventually become wet and dangerously live! The best solution is just to lower the water level an inch or two to ensure gaseous exchange can take place properly.
