Floating plants stuck in filter?
Does anyone have any solutions or suggestions for this problem:
I have a low-tech tank with some anacharis and a few stray java fern leaves floating around. The fish seem to like them, and I like to think the floating plants help keep the water clean (in addition to the plants that are anchored in the gravel).
The problem is that the floating plants are always getting stuck in the intake tube of the hang-on-back filter. Even if I pull them out every day -- and I'd prefer not to have to do even that -- they always get sucked in after several hours. Doesn't look great, and probably isn't good for the plants or the filter.
Thank you if you have any ideas to share!
