Low Maintenance Tank
The tank requires no mechanical filtration, just needs a couple of gallons of water replaced every week due to evaporation.
I've converted my other tanks over to this system, but have left a couple of small HOBs working during the hours at night when the land plants slow their filtering process.
As for the aquatic plants, they're mostly low light or shade, so they're really unaffected by the land plants.
Water changes used to be 125 gallons per week for the tanks. Now, I change out roughly 5 gallons to service the HOBs. Maintenance now includes misting the plants with a liquid fert and trimming. The Chinese Evergreen thrive in the nutrient rich water.
