<<Roger Miller said (in separate posts and in cases where the fish load
"Avoiding bacterial filters gives a simpler, less expesive and usually
quieter setup. REDUCING THE COMPETITION FOR AMMONIA SHOULD (ALL ELSE BEING
EQUAL) PRODUCE BETTER PLANT GROWTH"
"THE END PRODUCT FROM REMOVING BACTERIAL FILTRATION SHOULD BE HEALTHIER
PLANTS, less noise from the machinery and less work for the aquarist."
Well after reading Diana's book I'm actually giving this a try. I have good
plant growth but my nitrates do creep up.
I'v removed all filter media out of my Fuval404 except for the sponges (want
to keep the water clear of particles) so that it should have insuffient
biological filtration for the tank.
Will see if I can see any changes in plant growth and nitrate levels.
Will of course keep a close eye on Ammonia levels :)
