    Yes, much better than caulerpa, and safer too :)

    You will need a light, better to have in the sump with energy saving globes 4000 - 6500 kelvin. Cool white to daylight. Switch the light on at night, will help to keep the pH more stable ;)

    I would tend to agree. Natural methods of removing nitrates, and phosphates - are the ABSOLUTE best way. As there are no chemicals in the sea that "removes nitrates and and other nutrients"... ;)
