I have had two non-CO2 aquariums in the past 5 years. On the 1st tank I went with a HOB filter with peat . The 2nd time (my 55g ) I'm useing a filstar w/out peat. Light set up (new bulbs), fert program ,and substrate are the same. With the peat filter I got better growth due to the higher levels of CO2. The diff. in the two tank is such that I'm thinking of going back to the use of peat moss. If you can get past the yellow tinted warter ( carbon will remove this) peat can be your best friend in a non-Co2 tank.
