A Challenge: Three Effective Filters for Organic, Dissolved & Inorganic Nutrients in Reef Aquariums
Reef tank filtration... How do filter socks and fleece rollers control Nitrates and Phosphates? How do protein skimmers remove nitrate and phosphate? What about refugiums, algae reactors and scrubbers?
There are three stages to filtration: Stage 1- Solid form waste removal. Stage 2- Broken down dissolved waste removal. Stage 3- Testable Nitrate & Phosphate removal.
