    Im just wondering how i can minimize clutter as much as possible with my tank that im settign up. I know i can get inline heaters, but im worried about aeration. To get the look im wanting i want quite a lot of floating plants(also to give shade to some fish) and with a spraybar this would prove difficult. Is there a way of seperate aeration? I know eheim wet/dry filters do this but i have heard stories of this going wrong after a while. Thanks.

    Why does aeration concern you so much?

    thanks,i know abotu those two but the heating element in themofilters seems notorious for breaking or overheating(a few people have said or written about) and id prefer not to see bubbles at it would look unnatural. I might still consider that diffuser as it doesnt really agitate the surface
