Re: [APD] Filters

You don't need a filter if you've got enough plants to absorb the fish load.
You'll need a powerhead to move the water about though.
I've got a Walstad type planted tank and I find it works well with no filter
But I've found there is a lot of sediment floating around in the water so I
added a mechanical filter to the powerhead to remove these particles and
that's cleaned up the water just fine.
Of course this will act as a weak biological filter in any case. I clean it
out once every few weeks.
I felt weird not having a biological filter in the tank at first.
