    very interesting.....but it also mentions that the corals trap and grow the bacteria needed........therefore if the u.v light is on a timed cycle......it can only do good in removing the unwanted bacteria........(also taking into consideration the production rate of bacteria )....being at times, a few thousand times per hour,
    aswell as being a major team player in the eradication of fish diesease causing bacteria's (odinium / whitespot)etc.......
    the article aims more at other formes of bacterial removal methods as stated on the last few paragraphs................
    again.......as with lots in this hobby......some people do things one way........others another
    however very informative article
    thanks

    Yip, one should actually read all the articles in the series to understand the whole story. The interesting thing to me is the amount of diffrent foodsources for corals. It's amazing at how complicated and yet simplistic there method of feeding is.

    We could learn a great deal from them on waste not want not

    As with all things in live there is a good and a bad side.
