Would planted aquariums like this require some kind of invertebrate to help break down plant & newt waste, like isopods & springtails in bioactive vivariums which are more land based?

Water hog lice would be great but the newts would no doubt eat them all

Don't potting mixes normally contain peat which in theory could make the water more acidic?
