    I couldn't agree more with this suggestion!

    Okay well I will def keep them both in my mind. Ill be have about 12 gallons or so to work with. I put the front piece on today and the sliding glass door so Ill be adding water here in the next few days to see if my seal worked or not. I will be letting the water run and balance itself for about a mpnth or more if needed before I put plants or fish in there. If the water is fed to the carnivorous plants but it has traces of fish poop and fish food in it is this considered mutrients? I will have plants and a filter so it should be minimum trace amounts but don't want to risk it.

    We keep Gambusia in our seedling plant beds at Meadowview and the plants have been thriving, so I don't think it'll have much of an impact. I would use some aquatic plants to absorb as many nutrients as possible, just to be safe.

    Yeh that's what I was planning. Kind of delayed right now due to the freexing temps in getting anything since I fear most of them might die in transit. So I figure let the water stabilize for a month and hopefully we get some warmer weather so I can get some fish and plants shipped

    Sounds like a good idea. Pseudomugils don't like low temperatures from what I've experienced.
    Here are some Aussie aquatics you could use for nitrogen absorption.
