  • I'd love to see Joey update his knowledge on the nitrogen oxidizers in our filters. Nitrosonomas and nitrobacter are the most common bacterial oxidizers, though other species are active in our tanks. However, it's only been in the last decade or so that we've started to understand how huge a role ammonia oxidizing archaea have in our tanks, and given that they have unique conditions to thrive, our lack of education on the subject is likely a big cause of cycle instability in newly established tanks (not established from existing cycled media) 6-9 months after the initial cycling.

    • You never realy need to switch bio media, sponges can be replaced if they start to crumble or get hard, while solid medias should be fine indefinitely.

  • Joy, I think the wood inside & the plants make it pretty similar to the rest of the other tanks. I think if you use a smaller LED light, maybe a cool white color. Set it up in the middle of the tank. That way it will look bright in the middle & Dark from the side. Also changing from gravel to black Marble stone (not solid black) will make it look cool.

  • I can’t help but imagine the ceramic media as little rolls of toilet paper.

    Matty BMatty BVor 11 Tage
  • Joey- the surface area of ceramics used to treat water is determined using a method called BET (for the three authors of the original work, Brunauer, Emmett, and Teller). This method uses specific conditions to allow nitrogen molecules to adhere to the surface whose properties are being tested. Because the nitrogen molecules are so much smaller than the size of a bacterium, the "usable" surface area for aquarium purposes is vastly overstated. These claims are true, in a sense, but they are not accurate in the context of the aquarium hobby. FWIW, I've done BET surface area testing, and I've also worked in microbiology. Ceramics simply do not offer the usable surface area that their claims so often boast.
