RE: Filterless tanks

I've been running my tanks w/o filters for 6 months now, and have been
very happy with the results.  I use a powerhead with diy CO2 systems and
8800k lights.  The water is very soft, around 7-8 KH (RO/DI with some
tap water). The plants seem to be very happy.  I do have to farm some
easy-to-remove algae at times.  (I have one type of algae that I like
and allow to grow.) 
In the 60 gallon tank I keep a bristlenose Pleco and 11 rummy nose
tetras; the 40 has tiger barbs and cories.
