    HI All
    a'm busy doing resorts in the field of reef grow with the help with DC current. This is a new field in researching but there are companies all ready using this method in artificial reef building in the ocean, but it's never been used in marine tanks (not wat i know of any way)
    the method is quite simple what they do is to run an electrical current of 10 volts DC through the reef and that encourage the grow tempo.
    Do anyone know of this method or can give me some iv on this subject.

    :nerd: :grouphug:

    Cool idea though...What is the theory behind it increasing growth?

    direct current 10 volts is just a slit tingle.
