Moving beds are great for ammonia removal, but don't help nitrates much.

A floating plant is what I recommend in a fuge. Brazillian penny wort was one of my favorite fuge plants. Very easy to maintain. Didn't need a substrate. Just a clamp lamp from Home Depot.

As I progress with my readings and talking to other people, nothing replaces weekly (or even better, biweekly) water changes for nitrates and other toxins. I believe I am going to use 2 canister filters and see if I can develop a barrel system to age water on a weekly basis.

The tank has been cleaned, the back painted black and today tested for leaks. All good.

Update: the original oscars died within a week from being purchased. Apparently, the entire batch came in sick (others from the same order were returned at the store).

A pair of non-related oscars were found, and once placed in the same tank, they have been swimming together with no disputes.
