I forgot to mention that I also have a long trough at the side that is planted with large water plants for natural filtration as well. I would recommend this to anyone who has some space to spare to use this. the plants look good anyway.
I have araipaimas, peacocks, catfish, oscars, gars, arowanas, dats etc etc. my favourite place in the whole wide world.
