Remember leaves have to be above water.

I've looked at planted filters and seen a couple where Christmas Moss was used like a baffle. I would think you could only do that with HOB filter? I found Marina Slim Power filters on the Petsmart website. I am going to pick up a pair this weekend so I will have to see if I can make them into a nice planted filter. I like them because they are one of the few adjustable water flow HOB filters I've found. I may be picking your brain about the best way to set one of these filters up Choclate

The idea of algae in filters or refugiums is popular in reef tanks.

I am going to be cutting back my Pothos plant I have and placing the trimmings into my tank. I love the sounds of this idea and also the look of the roots growing down into the tank.
