I originally had an UG filter in my 35 gal. tank.  About 10 years ago I 
unhooked the airline but left the filter plate in place.  No problems 
with this setup so far.  If something detrimental has not happened in 10 
years, I doubt it ever will.  Thus, the reasoning behind my original 
recommendation.  Has anyone ever developed a problem with a 
non-functional UG filter?
