    Maybe it's to hook it up to yeast tank for the CO2 generator?

    I wonder if you could use a home brew tank as the generator? LOL

    Yep. they are fine now.

    I can't use a biowheel since it would outgas all my co2 . Really there's no need for bio media since the plants absorb everything anyway.

    Yeah. I add potassium nitrate, phosphate, potassium sulfate and trace elements 3x a week. I add Iron daily. I also use Jobes sticks in the substrate. I reconstitute my RO water with Calcium Chloride and Magnesium sulfate and add baking soda for the KH. They also need GOOD light and co2. For some reason my L. repens has white leaves. I dunno what i'm not giving it.

    Live plants are harder than a reef aquarium IMO. Cheaper, yes, but harder.

    I haven't had a problem except for snails! which are depriving them of good chances to photosynthesize, and theirs a good snail called Malaysian trumpet snail, and they ariate the soil, and help clean up the tank, they don't eat plants unless theirs nothing else to eat, aka a perfectly clean tank. So the bio-filter would keep that nice snail out and kill them if I added them again... jerk filter..

    JERKS!
