I do like using a filter in my tanks for 3 reasons:-
1) The water flow mixes the water keeping temperatures and nutrients level.
2) The filter elements provide a huge surface area, all surface areas in an aquarium are inhabited with bacteria, all areas served by
oxygenated water harbour beneficial bacterias, the filter flow provides oxygeneted water to its media.
3) The mechanical filteration keeps the water clear.
If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
