Bubbles move water, which means that a bare bubble bar is good for raising silt and making it dissolve in a tank. Dissolving silt in a tank is a good source of plankton blooms. Light up a filter and make water flow through it with a bubble bar. That will concentrate moss in your tank where you can remove it along with what it feeds on; Phosphate and Ammonia.
From left to right, it goes filter, bubble stream, glass, light. Mirror that for a filter on the left side of your tank. I used ultra-violet lights for a few months, and I am not sure that it was a mistake, because it might hav degraded my filter enough for a different variety of moss: Cool white will make moss grow faster, because cool white is not only a filter, like [[Wood's Glass]].
In the photo, you can see why I am using a vertical model: I needed space. That Echinodorus Rohzay needs a bigger pot, because its roots are so cramped that it is smaller than it was two months ago. You can also see a filter pad which I had hoped would continue to support moss. It did not. My moss strain is different than it was about six months ago, though. It began as a billowy and stringy variety that broke off in blobs for my fish to eat. I recently rinsed my filter under cold water, though, and a strain that sticks very well to my UV-degraded filter remained: I turned my filter around, and more moss is on the left side of it, toward my tank's rear.
Shit is to life what holy is to farmer.
I thot of this trick while wondering how Edmonton's wastewater could be treated so thoroughly that fish can survive in it. Recently, Edmonton decided that putting drinking water into the North Saskatchewan river with an enjineered waterfall descending from a bridge was a bad idea, because of Chlorine. I agree. In relative terms, though, I see a bigger crime in our wastewater, even if it is given show-tank treatment. If all of our wastewater is treated for supporting animals, then I see no easy way to remove soluble fertilizer without spending a lot of energy and contributing to greenhouse gases. I do not hav numbers on most of our sewage, and I am confident that it would be far cheaper and better for both plants and animals if we did like Victor Hugo recommended in Les Miserables. That is direct fertilizer to terrestrial plant life. I wonder if it would be practical to install a septic tank under boreal forest without disturbing roots of it too much. Then, we would not need to treat water very much at all; solids removal only. It would be an expensive investment in our future, and I think some of the payoff would be economic. To be sure, I am not talking about one acre or so needed for one family. I am talking about a feature other than tailing ponds in Alberta's landscape that is embarassing, and it is a lot of cuts for seismic lines; no tree roots to disturb, there. One tricky part of a job like installing sewer lines would be figuring out how deep to go with weeping pipe. With altitude from Global Positioning Satellites, that job got a lot easier in the last two decades. Sewer lines cannot go up without a pump, because solids go into sewer lines through holey pipe and clog depressions.
