I am thinking about having new 150gal aquarium with overflow and I am thinking about open aquarium to set floating plants and Tanganyika cichlids (Frontas and others).
What is your oppinion about my idea?
On what I have to pay attention when planning open aquarium?
Does anyone done this before - if yes, what experiance do you have?

I'm not sure about frontosa, but I know many other tanganyikans are good jumpers. I have found fish dead on the floor that managed to jump out the opening in the top for the filter intake.

I don't even leave my top open after feeding, found too many jumpers to feel safe doing so. Maybe you could make some kind of cover that still allows the plant to access the water. Possibly out of acrylic or glass.
