Re: [APD] aeration & a planted tank

my plant tub full of white clouds on my porch has had no problems... and 
it has gotten into the 100's alot this summer.. and stayed in the 90's 
mostly.  and the tub is quite full of plants.  No filtration, pumps or 
anything.  Just a tub, some gravel on the bottom, water, lots of plants, 
and white clouds..  and of course whatever has moved in since I put it 
all out there a few months ago.
