xltom said:Anaerobic bacteria(live deep in the mud where there is no oxygen) digest organic material(nitrates) and expel free nitrogen and sulfur dioxide as waste...sort of like how yeast expels alcohol into your favorite beer. I have reproduced this process in reef aquaria as a means of nutrient export.
Thinking of trying fern ridge tomorrow in my 12ft.....anyone been there recently? Any tips? I've never been...Don't even know where to put in.
