Ive read that there is a theory that algae consumes NO3
but in the process realises DON in order to propagate algae further down stream (say hair algae being most common in the display tank).
Section 2.9 Algae Scrubbers
There seems to be a insinuation that AC
will help but there isnt any information about using LR
or skimmers with Algae Scrubbers making me wonder "why are they trying to run one filtration type into the ground without any other filtration type to assist"; At least the berlin method also has the skimmer to help with filtration.. I realize Im opening a can of worms with this that was not apparent in the topic.. please forgive me..
Macro's being a very similar method to ATS
just not quite as active or aggressive.. Thanks for you input so far malkore.. maybe you will give me your opinion on experimental filtration techniques while your at it? I hope so.
*edit* I looked back to see when that usenet was arcived and it was in 1998.. that makes me wonder were ATS
reasearch has gone in the last seven years
I cant seem to find any more information.. I have read Dynamic Aquaria, building Ecosystems (an ecology text that is the sorce for ATS
information) and I cant seem to find were people have actually tried somthing other then AC
to help with the issue Im talking about (aside for one member of reefs.org.. maybe that will be were Ill have to direct my questions
