Anyone Else Into Low Maintenance Tanks?
If you've had the standard tanks for years and are looking for a way to avoid the large, weekly water changes, and still maintain pure water conditions, then research the use of the Chinese Evergreen. Emersing this plant in the tank water will remove all the nitrogens and create a vertually, "self-sustaning" tank for your fish.
The tank needs only a small, backup filter and water replaced a couple of times a week due to evaporation. Maintenance takes an hour a week tops.
If you're wanting to keep the fish healthy without all the work, then this may be your solution.
"Fear not my child, just change the tank water."
