I thought this article might generate some good discussion.....

Algae releasing sugar to feed bacteria that in turn kill corals?

Sooo.......how come all these reefers are adding carbon sources like vodka & sugar to their tanks & the bacteria growth comsumes & lowers nutrients levels.........which in turn makes it tough for algae to thrive. Seems the exact opposite of what this article says.

Or am I oversimplyfying things?
