starting a 10g sump/fuge



Basic jist of the sump i'm making. This is for my 55g FW. What are some typical things for ppl to put in a fuge area for a FW tank? I was thinking some fast growing oxygenating plants... maybe some mosses.

Also, has anyone tryed using a DSB on a fw tank? I dont really know what goes on in one of those, but i'm curious none-the-less. This area will also be used for occasioanly spawning some zebra danios.

Any input is appreciated,
David

So this is a FW fuge? I'm not sure what the advantage of a fuge on a FW FO would be.

Heater and airstone would go nicely in the fuge.

Anacharis would go well in the fuge. The mosses I have seen are not fast growing.

Nitrate removal when plants are used.. when you say fuge Im thinking refugium.. it would also remove phospates and other plant nutrients.. I wouldnt go with more than 2wpg though, it would become a problem you would need to fertilize the fuge! LOL..

We have been discussing this and other plant based filters in the Freshwater General Discussion area..
