    So I have been reading on DSB's and the argument that they are dangerous because detritus builds up in them creating (correct me if I'm wrong) hydrogen sulfide. I was wondering if a ATS would prevent this because it uptakes all the nutrients that are released by the detritus. I know Santa Monica has a tank that he hasn't gotten rid of any detritus in. Thanks!

    I have several tank in which I do not clean out detritus. I don't seem to have any issues, but I think there are arguments on both sides about this.

    If you are asking if a scrubber would prevent a hydrogen sulfide issue resulting from a poorly maintained DSB (which I believe is why one would have the issue) I believe the answer is a resounding "no".
