Best tank ever.
I think you found one reason I don't use mechanical filters.
maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.
have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.
With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)

Sounds like good advice bob, didn't think about planting till after the water was in. At least its only a 10 gal. If anyone has advice on specific types of fast growing plants that don't require hi tech lights I would be greatful. I have standard 18" flourescent tube in my hood.Thanks to all who replied .
