i buy all Tonga from Ming ( Moderator) i decide to bleach, then i run fresh water in 30 gal. conteiner for 2 weeks (24/7), the when i do water change, i use that water, i dose Vodka to drop the PO4, then when i make my new AquaS, i still have PO4 + major Algae , i think from dead stuff inside the Rocks, my BioPeletts can make it, i end up to dose some ZeoStart 3 ( some expensive Vinegar, i now you not like it) like 3 ml a day, finaly now i am around 0.04 , when i gone see 0.00 i will stop the Zeo, then let the BP Reactor to do the rest. For me Rowa is the last solution.
Now the tough part, making the theory into useful tool.
OK, i will try to provide the tool ( BP Reactor) by the way ,great material Dan, i really enjoy, Thank You, now, before 2003 i buy one Bio Reactor from that Korean guy on Woodhaven Av., he lost the store after blackout, one of the biggest and nicer at the time, i still have it, i just try to copy the concept, was some Bio Balls mix whit "Danny Balls" the problem is i can NOT find in market any more, i still have some , but NOT enough , same material they use today in BioPeletts (PHA) , the reason i insist on BP reactor and NOT Vodka or Vinegar is, i like NOT to mess the PH on my tank or to make entire tank "hatchery machine" some coral may like some NOT, i believe in BP , i wont give up easy, i see lots of small water filters grow up fast , include Coco warm and my 3 clams , sponges. When i use that Reactor (German) was amazing
what # of Nitrate go in and almost "0" out, low water feeding and small inside pump to help the flow from top to bottom.
