Response of heterotrophic bacteria, autotrophic picoplankton and heterotrophic nanoflagellates to re-oligotrophication

Response of heterotrophic bacteria, autotrophic picoplankton and heterotrophic nanoflagellates to re-oligotrophication Norbert Kamjunke, Dietmar Straile, Ursula Gaedke J Plankton Res 2009; 31 (8): 899-907. doi: 10.1093/plankt/fbp037 Overall, bacterial biomass did not change during re-oligotrophication, whereas chlorophyll-specific biomass of bacteria increased, APP biomass and phosphorus concentration showed a unimodal pattern and HNF biomass strongly declined with decreasing […]

A Nitrate Dosing Calculator For Better Tank Health (And Better Coral Color!)

by Stratos It has become a phenomenon of increasing frequency in the reefing hobby today to have “too clean” of a tank.  Zero nitrates, and sometimes even zero phosphates are found behind more and more tank issues.  Either can be quite problematic for the tank. With the ever popular “ULNS” systems and all methods of carbon […]
