Need Filter For Planted Betta Tank? | Aquarium Filter …

 · You do need a filter to keep the tank cycled. Some do what is called a wasteland aquarium, but it''s a lot more complicated then just throwing a few live plants in the tank, and I personally wouldn''t recommend it. You could always get a sponge filter, or baffle the filter you have currently to slow the flow.

Bio Ball filter [Archive]

Nitrate is absorbed by plants, so its no problem in a planted tank. In a marine aquarium you normaly have live rock to house these bacteria, but since deep inside the rock there isn''t much waterflow, there will be water with a low oxygen concentration, making it a perfect environment for an other type of bacteria, which converts the nitrate into nitrogen, which will be released as a gas.

Plants In The Filter | My Aquarium Club

I''ve done both in filters before - for sumbersed plants you need a fairly low flow normally otherwise they get torn apart by the currents in the filter (I assume you mean a hang on back filter ofc). Moss balls work ok provided the current isn''t -too- strong, java ferns also thrive like this (I often plant them just under filter outlets because they actually like running water).
