Tricky way to get more filtering

Got a nutrient problem, and looking for a temporary quick fix? Then don't clean your glass.

That's right. The periphyton that grows on your glass absorbs lots of nutrients (that's what makes it grow), so by letting it stay there and get thicker, you remove more nutrients out of the water.

Fun!
