Class project

  To all I need some input. I justtalked to my boy's 6th grade science teacher
about setting up a 10 gallon native fish tank. She is all for it. I have
collected some young darters and minnows from a creek in Illinois that was
almost dried up. These are to young to identify yet. I was thinking of setting
up a tank with these fish in it. The kids could watch them grow and at the end
of the year id the fish. The kids could observe the interactions of the fish and
write a class report about what they observed during the year. They could submit
the report to the NFC to see if we could put it on our web page. This was my
first idea. Any suggestions?
     The thing I am trying to figure out is the right type of filtration to put
on the tank. I am fond of the outside filters but would like to keep it where
the cleaning the tank would be simple and relatively clean process. Any
