Thanks everyone! I've been in the hobby for 3 years and this was the first time I considered buying a book for it. But maybe not
Matt - thanks for the link. Looks like lotta good reading in that thread. I'll read it next week and report back here.
One of the problems with asking questions in a fourum. Is you need to know what questions to ask, and then you get information from an unkown source, that may be provided inaccurately or in a inefficient manner.
To be more specific, Tyree advocated (advocates?) using his zonal approach to filtration. Which use cryptic sponges and sea squirts for primary filtration and discourages things like skimmers.
Totally agree, but in my case I have a science background so its pretty easy for me to tell whats bs and whats not. Before I posted this thread I had a rudimentary understanding of what Tyree is trying to do.
But in this situation I'm looking especially for peoples experiences.
And whose to say that whatever book your reading is correct? People listen to Dr. Ron all the time but I think a lot of the stuff he says is a crock. If its an actual published scientific paper then thats one thing, but these hobby books are just peoples opinions (which may or may not be true) that don't have to stand up to any academic rigor.
I wonder what is the water source for Tyree's grow out systems are and how often it is changed or replaced? :scratch:
