When I've got enough LR
, I'm going to get rid of my external Eheim wet/dry canister altogether.
Its looks ugly, needs quite a bit of maintanence, and is the loudest part of my tank :P
So, basically, how will I know when I've got enough LR
and bacteria in my tank to cope with the tank's bioload, without needing my filter at all? Bearing in mind, I guess the filter's wet/dry feature helps quite a bit.
The only plus my filter would give would be increased waterflow, and a place to put my rowaphos/carbon, but I intend to get a small hang-on-side filter for this purpose.
When/if I get rid of my filter (won't be for quite a while) is there anything else I need to pay particular attention to in the tank that I wouldn't neccessarily be too bothered about with my filter set up?
Can anyone advise?
