The plants are booming like crazy and the filter was turned way down anyway. I still plan on doing weekly water changes, just to get some of the gunk off the grave (but not out of the gravel). Tomorrow and every day for a couple weeks im going to test the water for ammonia, but provided it stays to zero im in it baby!
SO.... you guys think I should add a small air stone or tiny sponge filter to circulate the water, or just let nature do its thang?
I'll be curious to see how it works for you. I could see a the protein scum (whatever it's called) building up in my tank. I would think you need some way to move water around. I have a sponge filter on my small shrimp tank, but the sound of the bubbling, always sounds like my tank is boiling :)
