Great idea for a thread, I am following along. Awesome!
I agreeif you are running a low poo holding system, then at two lbs per gallon is way more LR then you need. i think i was less than 1 lb per gallon on my 125g system and it was just fine. we actually need a lot less LR than we were led to believe. i believe it came about during the wet/dry days in the early 90's. when people were worried about nitrates and not realizing the nitrates were actually coming from the wet/dry filters. so they were thinking just add more LR, which can help, but it is just easier to get rid of the wet/dry. of course this is when we are talking reef systems. you may need a wet/dry if you are running a heavily stocked FO system.
Definitely, I agree that it is a skimmer steroids. If it is properly used, vodka is a great method for tank health for some tanks. A lot of methods can be band-aids to hide/address other issues (waterchanges even), but combined with other husbandry techniques it is useful.I disagree that it is a band-aid. It's a supplement to our skimmers, allowing faster and quicker removal of waste and allowing us to feed the *tank* more food. Skimmers are great, but if their efficiency can be heightened, why not?
Nerd are always quick to come to blows... you would be amazed how uncivilized academia can be. Hobbies are worsestill. no need to threaten people for informing
yep, that is the one I found... good minds think alike :lol:This may be the study
I though dual 400w MH over a 65g wasn't enough! :lol:a waste of power? :dance:
