I have both filters running at the moment. I have the sponge for redundancy, bio filter & more precautionary, I can just stick it on a battery backup unit and run for days with a small 1 watt pump, if need be.

I have 5 platys and 5 long-finned danios, 3 mollies and 1 false cory catfish & babies.

Lighting currently on 1/2 of the tank is T8's--18" 15w and 15" 14Watt (extra fixtures from different tanks), the other half is just the led in the hood. Temporary situation.

Right now I have some broad leaf water sprite in the substrate that is doing well and also a bunch floating on the top.

You stated my goal perfectly.

Thanks for your time and input.
