My point wasn't that it isn't in the ocean so we shouldn't use it, that would be a little ridiculous.
It was that you can't compare the two whatsoever. Were truly not trying to duplicate nature, we're trying to jam our tanks with colorful things that are amazing to us. That's not a bad thing at all, but they can't be compared. I do understand that reactors are great to have, but
to say that they are necessary for a tank to have an ecosystem.. No way. What is the difference between the gfo
in a reactor and the gfo
in chemipure? I'd say less, Theres no difference in actual chemistry. Chemipure has the gfo
mixed in with other things to prevent it from clumping. What do people do that run reactors? They add carbon to keep it from clumping, therefore prolonging the time you can use it. If you put chemipure in a reactor, I think it might even be more effective than gfo
. The only difference is there is less.
