Excuse me, am I confused or what?  I thought the fundamental concept of Dutch 
tanks is to get the fish to build up lots of fish-pooh in the substrate.  
Without fish, how do you do that?  Maybe there's a feline approach.  Of 
course to get the cat's cooperation, a kitty-litter substrate may be 
required.  I once had a roommate's cat use an empty 20-long as a litter box 
with just plain gravel though.  Maybe you just have to train them to go over 
the water.
