you can goto Wal Mart and pick up a rubber maid container and plant some Caulerpa plants in there. Caulerpa can also be harvested and used as fresh, natural food for fish. In addition, Caulerpa prevents the growth of undesired hair algae by competing for essential nutrients.

Caulerpa plants uses the end products of fish metabolism and fixes them into plant tissue, therefore preventing the accumulation of harmful ammonia, nitrites and nitrates, and stabilizes the pH. I am not sure what would work best for a bed to plant the Caulerpa in (sand or crushed coral) but the best shot would be to plant it in Miracle Mud (but that is not cheap at all)
