[APD] Closing up for the night

  As I am sitting here in front of my tank w. the lights off (it's about
11pm), I see all of the stem plants with their leaves raised - like they've
closed shop for the night.
  I've seen this in terrestrial flowers, but don't really notice it in
terrestrial plants.  I am wondering why the aquatic stem plants do this.
I'd think they'd stay open so that they can re-absorb the O2, that is
trapped under the leaves, for respiration.

Some food for thought.
