They also have Amguard, which does the same thing.

PS: Cool looking set-up. Ive wanted to do an all pots sort of thing like this. They always look so nice and tidy, haha. Is that a "sensitive plant" growing up above the water line near the bottom of your picture?
Thank you for your advice! I'll try to get some seachem prime.

Glad you like the set-up! Been wanting to do it for a while, I'm waiting for it to fill up so it gets a little bit more of a pond look. I also figured it was a "modular" way of keeping my favourite plants and moving them easily when the time comes.

You saw correctly, that is a small cutting of a water sensitive plant (Aeschynomene fluitans). I really hope it will adapt and spread nicely.
