Great question and thanks for the extremely kind words. Truth is I still am very much in a constant state of trying to improve, anywhere that I can.So, in a situation where you are one of the world’s finest SPS growers with years of success… how do you decide to make a major change on your system like this? It would seem like risk >> reward. What if your corals don’t like the lower nutrient environment the roller with theoretically provide?
But good luck. Still a super cool project!’
In this case it was a no brainer and something ive been wanting to address a long Time now, as I have had literally zero means of mechanical filtration on this system since day one, and I’ve got pockets of detritus in places that had reached nearly 3 inches deep.
When I’d fill up a bucket up it was very evident my water could use a polishing, as it had a very obvious brown tint to it. I assume due to the massive amount of suspended detritus in the water.
my corals have actually perked up a bit noticeably the last week.
