Pros: Confirmed many of the practices I have implemented by close examination and scrutiny concerning parameters and dosing. Many of the practices I've implemented with my tank were the result of reading about other reefers success stories in R2R, he confirmed what some have also discovered.
Cons: Love to have heard his take on quarantine practices they have implemented.
Very informative info based on solid success from one of the best, proof is as the old saying goes" A picture says a thousand words"
Pros: I love the interview format. Excellent writing, and novel information about a respected facility that AquaBiomics users could potentially apply to their own systems.
Many, if not all, of us aspire to keep tanks with thriving acropora like Battlecorals. This AquaBiomics analysis is an entirely new way to provide insights on the famously successful acropora husbandry of Adam Derickson. Kudos to AquaBiomics for developing this new method for describing system parameters, and to Battlecorals for generously sharing their data with the community!
It's reassuring to know that hobbyists like yourself are serious about ensuring that the animals are truly healthy and thriving and spreading the knowledge so that everyone can achieve the same goals. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing these insights! After getting better control over our chemical water parameters in recent years, it seems that the next step is trying to understand and improve the microbiological diversity.
