Land and Aquatic Plants in FW Tanks
Just reread D Crosby Johnson's book on no water change tanks. Only thing is, he doesn't use aquatic plants, just the roots of land plants to remove the dissolved nitrogen from the tank water. Started using both aquatic and land plants in my tanks to keep the water close to nitrogen free. Attached pics of a couple of the tanks.
The fish love the cleaner water. Doesn't reduce the need for large water changes, but don't have to do them as often.
"Fear not my child, just change the tank water."
