Iíve used IAL, maple, oak, sycamore, mulberry, and various deciduous leaves. Mulberry breaks down the fastest (mostly because itís food in the shrimp tank) followed by maple; sycamore is like leather...

In case you do stumble upon a drilled tank, add a bulkhead fitting if one is not present as well as a threaded cap. This will allow you to add the necessary plumbing for a sump in the future.

I would also look into a heater controller. These devices will monitor the temperature and will shut off the heater(s) in the event they malfunction (for instance, get ďstuckĒ in the ON position).

^^^ Was thinking the same thing. You can set it so that you have a few windows of time for feeding. Not quite the on demand option you were looking for but cheap alternative.

I like the mini fridge and canister idea. You could probably swap out the canister filter with a water pump or power head. You would have to fashion some type of radiator in the fridge for heat...

Lower cost option is to run a fan across the surface. It will increase evaporation.

Yes, remove the lead strip and plant individually in groups about 1Ē apart.
The red ones look like a species of Ludwigia and the green ones a species of Rotala.
