What would be the best filter system for a 55Gal. Freshwater planted setup? If you don't have an UGF, how often do you have to clean the gravel?
Re: Best filter????
Scotty, for a planted tank, UGF is not advisable. Best to stick with internal filter. The reason why UGF is not advisable is that plants do not like the movements on their roots. This will only upset them.
How about a wet/dry filter? If I decide to go with a different filter system, can I just leave UGF in the tank?
Wet/dry filter should be ok.
As for UGF, you must remove it to prevent anaerobic spots which will release toxic gases poisonous to the fish.
if you have ANY splashing then you will destroy your C02 and thus slowing down the growth of your plants.
