Lol. Of course I don't wanna do that but do plants need a certain amount of water flow? I'm not experienced in planted tanks. I have only been keeping fish for about 6 months and the only live plants I have are windelov java fern, anubias(can't remember which kind) and just got some java moss. I have pretty low lighting but they seem to be doing alright. But I want to do a heavily planted 10 gallon with 3-4 watts per gallon and wondering if wafted flow woe be an issue. Like if I do just a sponge filter run by just an air pump, would that be sufficient or would I do better running it with a power head? Again Thanks for all your help. I don't know when I will be able to set this up as my wife thinks I'm obsessed with aquaria! ( she's probably right) but I just want to as informed as possible when I start.

My shrimp have always thrived on just whatever I give them. Pretty much just pellets or flakes that I feed to the fish. The biggest key to their survival is no predators.

As far as current goes, they'll learn to stay out of it if it's an issue for them, I have a magnum HOT canister on one of my shrimp tanks going full blast, lol.
