Would like to read the article but the link is forbidden.........at least for me
I fixed the link, if there is a defined abbreviation in you link, it will screw it up, if you don't parse them.
please read that article. Its by DR. Ron, so you know that its from a reputable person in the hobby and its very informative. Its very easy to read.
It was also written prior to his salt study and his OTS findings. Since that article was written, he is (and this is complete hearsay, I haven't read it from him, one of those I read it somewhere) reported to have said a DSB
CANNOT work long term.
I would suggest you research as much as possible and then make an informed decision. Do not take the advice of just one person, get as many educated opinions as possible, then form your own from that info. People jumped on the DSB
bandwagon several years ago...now they seem to be jumping on a different bandwagon.
I personally do not use a DSB
in my display tank, I do have a DSB
in my fuge, where it can be removed. I no longer encourage people to use DSBs, I do encourage them to research and make a decision, then if they need help, I will tell them how to set one up.
