I meant like certain plant species may take one or two dangerous things. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ltering_plants http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASA_Clean_Air_Study

So in that picture, the big leafy plant is growing out of the filter?
This thread is kinda hard to understand or maybe i'm just dumb. Does having the plants in the filter do anything special? I know I have been told to put moss into the filter to lower the PH but never a whole plant.

The plant will provide a small amount of room for BB. The plant really looks interesting. The plant can suck up nutrients and since the plant is not limited by CO2 in water so can remove more CO2 and there is more CO2 in air.

It was a complete accident the idea of filter plants will not spread if people say it releases a dangerous chemical but remeber never to let a Betta see a peace lily they have a bad history LOL.

I have seen other people on other forums use the idea.

Chocolate, what are your thoughts on growing a sweet potato ( or is it a yam?) in a filter?

That would be aquaponics and it will not work in a filter it will rot and release ammonia only certain plants can live like this. You can grow them in soil and give them water from water changes.
