I reduced the water flow rate

My filter flow rate was overkill and caused too much turbulence. The floating plants were in a whirlpool. I removed one of the HOB filters and everything is much calmer and prettier. Some of the small plants can now take refuge in the floating plants whereas before they would have to constantly move. I tend to overdo things but now very happy with less turbulence and noise. Besides, I needed a new impeller for that filter. I didn't realize how noisy it was until I took it away.

What am I looking at in that picture? Is that some sort of unique tank set up or just a plant?

It's a fresh water sump refugium with an aquaponics grow bed in it. The plant is a sweet potato plant

Basically a wet-dry trickle / biological filter.
