Your welcome but plants like Lucky Bamboo, Peace Lily, and Pothos do great and are commonly sold.

Your welcome. The filter method seems more common with Oscars and Goldfish.

Is that because they are so messy, and the filter plants are extra good at removing the bad stuff?

Oscars and goldfish need big tanks and are messy. They use canister filters which are perfect for filter plants standard hangons work too.

Do you think that filter plants are more effective at removing the bad stuff than plants that are grown inside the fish tank?

They are better they are not limited by CO2 like aquarium plants air has more CO2 than water.

It would be good for pet fish if more owners would use filter plants.

Not many people think of it because most do not even know the benefits of regular aquatic plants.
