Ah..... kind of like a Hamburg mattenfilter.... but inverted. I honestly don't mind using a pond sponge filter in the event of issues, since I'm getting better at hiding them, and I can fit one in the budget. I'd be nervous using a filter I'm uncomfortable with on top of the plant experiment. I think I'll just keep a pond sponge fiilter cycled for backup.

I'll have to remember that kind (pot plant) of filter. Sounds pretty simple and easy to use. What amount of filtration can you get? Maybe I'll try it out in my quarantine 10G. I have to start that cycling soon so it's ready in a few months.

Well, my first package of plants arrived, so I'm dry-starting now. I'll let you know in a few months if the nitrites/ammonia drop to 0 and remain stable. Pulled out the 10G and cleaning it up so I can make it the quarantine tank.

I'll let you know how the experiment turns out.
