the pump pumps up all teh poop and solids that fit through it and it get splashed all over those lovely rocks with rough, air pocketed surfaces filling them and making them slimy and way less effective. also far less nitrogen changing going on.
it takes some months for it to build up depending on how many fish, but it can get pretty gross in time and plant roots like air space, not slimy and slightly anaerobic type stuff.
just putting that hose into a little tub with some filter cloth put in will make things soooo much nicer down the line...unless you plan on replacing frequently, in that case nevermind.
