    I agree here! I've been converting over to wet/dry sumps with mechanical filtration incorporated. I want lots of flow and crystal clear water. The only good tank is one that is as optimal as possible for both the fish and the plants. Since I tend to like stream fish, I tend to crank up the flows.

    You are over aerating when there's more bubbles than water. :D

    No. In my opinion, they're not a must.
