I heard of putting Vitamin C in the sump and it would help with color and fight off disiese. is this just urban myth?
the reek most defintiely came form the die off associated with my massive reaquascaping....my point is that I know my systems well, and I know htat they are extrememely efficient, efficent enough to be able to tell when something abrupty changed when I started the dosing. I have the ability to strip the water clean as it is...soiemthing in the dosing allowed soemthing else that wasnt usually able to be pulled out...get pulled out.Perhaps the reek came from the insides of the rock you drilled.
I kinda doubt the vita c oxidizes the water. It is an anti-oxident, after all. If that was your goal, simple ozone would be more effective. Anti-oxidents protect the body from reactive oxygen.
Perhaps if one were using ozone the vita c would serve as some sort of protectant? Would be an interesting study. One of you college students get on this pronto please (seriously, would be a great thesis)
