The plants _are_ the filter.

They use wetlands to treat sewage and other wastewaters. 
We add NO3, PO4 and traces, the plants remove them.
Plants can remove heavy metals, toxic waste, all sorts of useful things to
for environmental clean up.

You do not need any chemical removers in a planted tank ever.
All you do is take care of the plant's needs and the plants are happy, this
makes the fish happy and that makes you happy and your life simple.
Try selling plants vs spent NO3 removing resin sometime also.  
Plants look better also:-)
