Filter for plant only tank?


I am probably going to be setting up a 40 breeder as a plant only tank. Should I have a filter on it you think?

You could get away with a sponge over a powerhead intake.

I've been running for over a year with no filter. Don't need it at all.

Depends on your stocking level. If your going to overstock it to the extreme then a filter would be required.
