    Interesting article with an interesting product, haven't seen this product in SA.

    Have a read and I was amazed at the fact that he is not running any mechanical filtration...

    As i understand it it help macro algae grow by replacing the micro elements it needs. i picked up the tip from Jaco Schoeman who was the NPS master.

    The key is having a nice refugium one that's capable of dealing with your bio load. it might also work in conjunction with algae turf scrubbers.

    Also reef grunge. Probably one of the pioneers of fragging and coral propagation. Got my name from their Reef Janitors. :m03:

    Yes and their reef rocks.
