I think it's perfect! Cat drinks water, top off with new water, bowl is getting constant small water changes... Granted, doesn't matter as much for a bowl, but is nice for a small tank.

I'd be wary of making generalizations and drawing conclusions from one experiment... there could be other factors at play that you didn't think of or are unaware of.

Usually it causes lots of algae problems... It's possible to have a planted setup in a window without algae problems, but can be tricky to achieve.

Question Pondmaster on its side

Do sump pumps such as Pondmaster need to be upright? Or would it be fine if it was sitting on its side so the return tube was pointing up instead of out the side? Any experiences with this?
Thanks

I keep seeing the recommendations for Stiphodons, but I've avoided them due to not having a hillstream type setup... do they really do just fine without a strong current in the tank?

Sand is a fine cap, but it doesn't have the CEC to absorb some of the excess nutrients from the soil. It would work without that, but it might just take longer for the ammonia/nitrates to go down...

I've been doing the 5-4-5 lighting regimen on my T5HO no-CO2, dirted tank. Haven't seen any algae. But I also always have floaters filtering a lot of the light, right now dwarf water lettuce.
