sponge filter placement, will plants get in the way?
i'm working out the layout on a 10 gallon tank, and was thinking about putting the sponge filter in the middle. A simple airpump attaches itself into the filter and serve to drive the water in and out.
i'd like to cover up the filter with an island of java ferns attached to driftwood. i'm aiming to grow a mini-forest in the middle...but will this somehow impede the filter's operation?
Below is a sketch of the layout. As i've never been good at drawing, i implore you to use copious amounts of your imagination :D
