    This trade-off between food availability and water quality can be circumvented by using plankton-saving filtration systems, which include denitrifying sand beds such as Dynamic Mineral Control (DyMiCo), and ALGAL TURF SCRUBBERS (Wijgerde 2012a,b). As the side advantages of the protein skimmer are lost (i.e. maintenance of a high oxygen saturation and pH via aeration of the water), it is important to compensate for this, especially during night time. This can be done by aerating the water with air pumps, or by limiting the stocking density of corals and fish.

    This is a great article, read through most of it already. SM has already plastered it on just about every forum he's on also.

    Well of course he has. It is a big boost for ATS and he's still the "big man" of them. Even though I didn't like his advice much

    I've started to aerate my horizontal now. Just don't seem natural without tiny bubbles, somehow.
