I got live fresh water planted gravel, RO water from Wal-mart(same water I use for my reef tank), and got...

    I know,.. I know. I said I wasn't getting involved, but then I got this idea :doh: The situation is that I have a 10G that's in my wall and has been empty since June when I gave away all the plants that were in it. I will enter if: 1. I have everything I need laying around. 2. I can design...

    Zooxanthellae take in ammonia given off as waste by the polyp and return aminoacids...so more fish equal more ammonia, does this equal the more coral you can add to a tank? Zoo's convert co2 and h2o into o2 and carbs-polyps use o2 for respiration and gives co2 to the zoo's....so is extra co2...
