  • Bacteria/T.Pohl

    Coral magazine had a series of articles in '04 about nutrients on reefs. T.Pohl is mentioned as observing bacteria additions causing polyp extention and overall growth. If you read this series, especially the part about how and why low nutrients on a reef work in conjuction with zoozanthellae, Zeovit really makes sense. I know if I discovered addition of bacteria would aid in coral growth, I would try to find a way to add bacteria, not just put glucose in a bottle.......

    Can you scan and post that article?
    Hmm,is that alowed?Just change few words to avoid lawsuit (like reverse enginering)

          Peter Wilkens published similar observations as early as 1980. There's nothing new about the observations related to the apparent effects on coral behavior related to suspended microflora and microfauna in a low nutrient water column. What is new, it seems to me, is the emergence of what appears to be a reliable, easily replicable method of generating microflora and microfauna suspensions is saltwater aquaria. Sweet ... .

            Gary, I think that's pretty much the crux for the heated discussions. The majority of people (including scientists) say it can't be done....

              Shhhh ... I've purposefully withheld internet access from my SPS specimens so that they will not discover that their enhanced coloration, increased polyp extension, and increased growth rates are a myth ...

              ... Shhhh ...

                  haha... that is very funny .. I never let my corals hear all the hoop laaaa from RC they may just decide to go back to the poop brown they were before I started ZEO. Since afterall this is snake oil.
