    Has BRS investigated Turnover Rates? I know Triton recommends a 10x turnover but I'm wonder how much turnover is truly necessary.

    I ask because I ran a low turnover rate tank (2x) for a while and had a terrible display hair algae outbreak while testing 0 NO3 and 0 PO4. It almost made me quit the hobby. I've since upped my Turnover rate and often wonder if my low flow to the sump was the problem all along.

    Interested in this too! Don’t think I’ve seen a video from BRS on this but they should make one!
