Add buffering capabilities to the argument Cause many peeps have a problems with that in a BB setup cause they dont know their chemistry...:sgrin:nanoreefer22 said:Chief,
I see where your coming from but all those things add to the bioload of the tank, so don't you think a tank without them would do somewhat better? With the lower bioload and all.
As Tony said you can keep a BB for the most part cleaner, you don't have detritus accumulating, and the water stays nutrient free. This is only a part to keeping a healthy thank but it works, if you do it right. I have detritus accumulation in one spot about 1inch x 1inch.
The cons of BB are that you have the unnatural look unless you find a way to camoflauge it.

pardon me for my ignorance but what is the difference between DSB and SSB? I was leaning on 4 to 5 inches of sand.Chiefmcfuz said:He said he was going DSB and I sugg'd SSB that's all. Oh and there should be a still in between it and lets in my prev post.
I'm pretty much 100% :scratch:hermangareis said:If you are 95% sure that you want to go the DSB route, make it 100% and go with it. Any help that you need, we can help you with and we will be with you 100%
I'm sorry, this is not what I intended :hug:hermangareis said:I just hope this thread will not get into the argument of why the other is no good
