  6. I like a more standard fish, like Zebra Danios, GSP's are just comic relief.

    I've been reading about using 'Lucky Bamboo' (Dracaena sanderiana) for a nitrate filter. There is an example on YouTube: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7e8AYLv8oo&feature=related" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7e8AYLv ... re=related</a>

    The only problem is that it is widely held that Dracaena sanderiana is highly toxic to cats.

    Do you know of another less/non-toxic but equally usable plant?
