Awesome for ya man!! So, will the BB die off a bit?
Yeah, but it's ok. Corals actually produce waste all on their own. A few snails, hermits, a shrimp or something and the BB will be fed just fine. Keep in mind that BB are nearly all aerobic, which means they take up oxygen, more than most people realize. Think "trickle filter". Those work so ridiculously well because the bacteria have so much access to oxygen. They really consume a lot!
Reducing bio-load doesn't just mean less nutrients stressing the corals. It also leaves a little more O2
for them. The bacteria will still be there doing their magic. The tide just turns to everything in the tank working to the coral's benefit. He can still feed the tank, but it'll be the corals getting fed. Kinda like an only child getting spoiled vs. a big family where the kids all end up sharing rooms and argue over whose turn it is to play the X-Box. lol
