Cool tank, I'm also getting back into it after a few years away. Things seem mostly the same, except LED is all the rage now.

Don't want to derail the thread too badly, but with doing water changes that infrequently, wouldn't you be dealing with a buildup of TDS and whatever minerals that your plants don't remove? Do you...

If push came to shove, I would have no problem drinking water out of my fish tank. If it was a tank that didn't get regular water changes, I'd be a little wary, but I suppose it's better than dying...

In my Aquaclear 20 I have no problem fitting the sponge on the bottom, a 100 ml Purigen bag (the standard size bag of Purigen), and the biomax on top, so it shouldn't be a problem for you either.

Great info man, this is probably why I had a bunch of shrimp die off the first time I regenerated a bag using their acid buffer. I'll definitely keep this in mind next time I do a regen.

Great tank! It's nice to see your progression from fake, beginner stuff to a more advanced natural design. I was pretty much the same when I started out about a year ago. I had to eventually add...

I don't know about the catfish, but to back up zoomastertycoon's statement, I have 8 otos with about 70 RCS, and they just occasionally push each other around for food.

Java fern is also a pretty slow growing plant, so you may as well not see any growth in a week. And if you want multiple plants, you can split the rhizome and each piece will grow on its own.

In line with what Paula said, planaria infestations seems to be an indicator of poor water quality due to overfeeding or inadequate water changes.

With that said, my 1 g tank had a handful of...

I don't see any reason why you could not do it, besides getting it to fit with your hood. I would say the reason that HOB filters are normally seen on the back is because that's where the tank is...

In my limited experience, I don't think you need filtration. You have just 2 snails in there with a good amount of plants, which should balance each other out. If you are paranoid about excess...

I don't see anything wrong with your current filter as long as you keep it clean. Sure, you may have to clean it more often, but it should still be able to handle your tank. And if you run a chemical...
