    1) I was wondering if all the dead leaves disintegration, the debris and plants wastes may be going to form a source of carbon, like liquid carbon (Glutaraldeyde) or CO2 for the aquarium system and also a source of nourishment for the other plants. My small tanks outside my house have nothing but dead leaves inside and plants are growing plenty without any source of fertilization.

    2) The water inside "plant aquariums" soon become a kind of yellow just like the one in "fish aquariums". Is this yellowing caused by the plant wastes ? May it interfere with plant growth ?

    I did not notice the same yellowing to occur in the tanks without filter in my garden.
