Plenum with AIO internal filtration?
I am getting back to this wonderful hobby after a 20 year hiatus and I am setting up a 20 gallon cube tank that has an all-in-one internal filtration system. I, like many of you, have scanned the internet for advice on “the best” or “optimal” set up.
My internal filter will have bio balls, ceramic rings, and after established, some bio chem green.
The tank will have some easy plants and a light bio-load.
I just saw the you tube videos about the “need” for a plenum under my gravel system. Do you all think it is needed or overkill or simply a benefit? I am just designing my system and trying to make optimal decisions for my future aquatic critters.
Thank you for any thoughts!
