I promise to add more to this section. Here are a few good pointers I learned.
1- A planted aquarium keeps fish waste out of the water very well…You plants eat fish waste and clean the water. you don NOT want to run carbon in your filter. When you run activated charcoal in a planted tank filter, you are stripping out all the nutrients/fertilizers you are paying to add to the water! In my tank, I ran one biological eheim filter, and one eheim canistar filter with ONLY filter floss. (Which is pillow stuffing from Walmart)
More to come. This is just a holding page for now.
