Re: Plant Primer
: 2. Don't use air pumps
: 1. Use undergravel filters.

Just to be a pest ;-) I just recieved a sword from a friend that was
grown in a 20 with no UGF, an air driven filter, and a power filter with
charcoal that produced an amazing ammount of surface turbulance--it's
over 20" high with dozens of broad deep green leaves. (She had to get rid
of it so her fish would have room to swim around again--it was only a few
inches high a few months ago. :-)
: Change 15% to 30% of the water every two weeks
I'd go higher that that, but so much depends on the individual tank....
At any rate, an extensive, well written piece--I'm sure many of the
readers will benefit from it.
Freedom's just another word for no fish left to lose.... ;-)
