My pothos cuttings are starting to root now after about a week. Im looking forward to the roots growing in the tank and providing new areas for Arthur and Charlie to explore in their tanks.

Sarina has pothos growing in her tamk too. Pothos and mangroves are used for big nitrate problems. Check out Bens aquariums on youtube it xhows how nutrients are cut down.

So if I wanted to put plants in my filter how would I do so? I know there has got to be a really obvious answer to this but I am just trying to imagine it.

Would I need a certain type of filter?
Do I have to take the filter media out?
Do I need some kind of substrate inside? or any modifications to the filter?

I am genuinely curious.

As long the right species is selected. The plant can be added. Although some cartridges are weak and some tanks encourage the plant to root and break the cartridge. So remeber to cut the roots.
