The mega nitrate article is just a downsized algae turf scrubber and not to say they do not work when they are up to par, but they do not replace that of a skimmer and, of course, depending on what you are housing. Most fowlr tanks, ime, are geared towards predatory or just large animals so whether or not you will be housing such is the question.

The person pushing the thread seems to have some decent anecdotal data to support the claim and I haven't seen any tracked data disputing it either. Not long ago if these boards existed the same would have been being said about skimmers.

Some FOWLR tanks, mine specifically, are not intended for that at all. I just don't have a great interest in coral nor the added care and expense that come with them. Frankly my tank looked and performed as well before I added a skimmer. Given the opportunity to remove one piece of equipment that would be the first to go
