I am wondering if anyone is familiar with any aquatic CP's that you can grow in water trays that help keep the tray clean, so I don't have to manually go in and clean it?

For a while I was using Azolla, not carnivorous, which was working great, but I have been wondering if there were carnivorous alternatives?

I have been considering U. Gibba as an alternative. Does anyone know if that helps keep the water clear?

I’ve heard that inflata utilizes nutrients in the water to grow. So if there are excess nutrients that leaked into the water it’ll suck them up and use them to grow. You will need a pretty deep gray though.
