That’s super cool! Yeah I’m not brave enough to try it. Lol. I think if any of my fish would enjoy it, it would be my Betta. They’re a pretty hearty fish and live in harsh conditions in the wild. My males refuse to bubble nest with a filter. I had rescued one with ich and had to wait for my sponge through the mail so I quarantined him without one for like 3 days and he made a huge bubble nest. Only time I’ve had one do it, and I have... 5 males. So if I breed I may try no filter until the fry hatch. My other fish are quite fragile I think. Or rather, I think they are because that’s what I’ve read.I do get some slime on the glass. I clean the front glass but leave the rest of it alone. Recently, I did start getting a little hair algae but I'm pretty sure that's being caused by my new light. I have sand and I'm pretty thorough when I vacuum it. My only complaint has been an increase in debris in the water column, but that has actually started to balance out also. I didn't have any air in the tank for the first couple of days and my fish seemed to prefer it. I started seeing a lot of breeding behavior and my fish started occupying the area where the filter output was. It's been a lot of fun comparing the behavior in my filterless vs. filtered tanks. I'm not ready to ditch all my filters, but I'm really glad I was comfortable enough to try it.
It’s an interesting thing to think about and maybe try sometime once I get comfortable with things.
Won’t let me upload a video! I added a new male to my tank and it’s going very awesome.
