Hi folks.
I've been catching threads of discussions about different ways to grow CPs
placed in aquariums. Currently, my plants are in individual pots placed in
the tank, with water around the pots. I chose this method as it allows me
to use different growing media for the different types of plants and
facilitates repotting. But the standing water appears stagnant and has some
algae. Is it better for the plants to fill the tank with growing media,
skipping the pots, and planting them all in the mix? And if not, how often
should I be completely changing the standing water and/or cleaning out the
tank of algae? I'd appreciate any advice on tank growing from the group.
