Cool. Very well maintained tanks. Did you notice all the [conventional bubble up] under gravel filters?

That is usually the norm in stores that still have individually-filtered tanks [as opposed to all the tanks being interconnected so the water flows from tank to tank and underneath the tanks through a filter]. In the situation where you have more fish in each tank than would work long-term with consequently more waste, a UG pulls stuff down into the gravel faster. So the tank water is clear, very clear considering the fish load. I would suspect they do weekly water changes and really vacuum the gravel; I have a local store that does this, the tanks are spotless and have fairly thick gravel beds. I prefer this system, and it isolates fish and water to each tank.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Yep, I'm a 'fan' of the conventional UGF having used them successfully over the last 40+ years
