The water in a pond will become foul very quickly. I would suggest adding a small pump just to circulate the water under the false bottom. This will raise the humidity and keep the water from stagnating.

hey i have a "pond" type arrangement in a twenty high and it only has a water pump, (which is comlpletely buried under larger rocks) not filter, and ive never had any probs with the water. i would think the plants roots have a healthy effect by cleaning somewhat, and i was told wood would help the pH. just take some out with a turkey baster every once in a while

pillow moss from BJ or tandc is always worth it to me. it can go directly on the gravel if you want. it makes the frogs stand out better than spagnum.
