i know if you have a heavily planted tank you may not need a biofilter. this is because the plants use the ammonia totally. no nitrite or nitrate are produced resulting in superb water quality. What i dont want is the plants to use all of the ammonia before it gets to the biofilter thus killing the bb. I know for an oscar tank you need an enormous amount if plants and my gut tells me that its the filters that get to the ammonia before the plants but as paul said i do not have any scientific evidence of this.:laugh: BTW this is what happens when the fishing season slows down. I got too much time to think of stuff like this:laugh:

I have no idea why the water bill is so high
