    What are the bacteria populations in the water column of reef tanks, and how does that value compare with bacterial counts in authentic reef water? Does carbon dosing indeed increase water column bacteria populations (i.e., is growth carbon limited)? Does mechanical filtration (protein skimming and/or GAC filtration) actually remove bacteria from the water column, and if so, how much? Ken, Allison, Sanjay, and Gary's in-depth article puts these questions to the test.

    Wow.. that was a really interesting read!! Old reef syndrome caused by skimming! Hmmm, good chance to punt for special blend here! ;)

    Its so long? I'm gonna end up blind if I try to read this on my tiny BB screen....
    Anybody wanna perhaps give us the focal points and suggested solutions to encourage more bacteria growth in our tanks :)
    Pretty Please...
