I was just wondering what everyone's opinions are on fluidized-bed filters. I am setting up a 28g jbj hqi nano and I'm going to make it a BB tank. Since I am already going to plumb in a nano chiller I was thinking of running the return from the chiller through a fluidized bed filter. Any thoughts?
:idea:

this idea came from the swimming pool world where fluidized sand is used in filtration. as geoff said it is just a crap trap that will raise your phosphates.
in addition, if you ever have a power outage the fluidized bed will become anoxic very fast and then when the power comes on it will spew poison into the tank.
