I hope I'm not straying too far from the original subject here. I wonder, after reading until my eyes are crossed (Yeah, Timbo...it ain't just you
), why a DSB
works better than a plenum. I go to one site or read one book and they praise the plenum from start to finish. The next one advocates a DSB
. To me, the theory behind each one is sound. I wonder if someone who has been there and done that could explain the pros and cons to each system? Just for the record, I have 4" of CaribSea Seaflor in my 10 gal
. I was told by several sources that this probably wouldn't work due to grain size and the fact that it's such a small tank, yet my nitrates are 0. Since the days are counting down to setting up the 180g at the eye center, I've gotta figure out the best way to do it so that the nitrates don't get out of control.
