Great post and totally relevant to discussion. I think ocean rock gives us that leg up every reefer needs honestly. After cycle(if any) and cure it hits the water running, processing nutrients, maintaining balance we strive for and as long as we walk that fine line of import/export and keep params locked and dialed we really should see any issues at all honestly. I think we are chasing exact opposite, un naturally with dead rock and we aren't going to find natural in any bottle bac that I know of currently.I never had nutrient issues with my live rock tanks in the past. This dry rock tank bounced all over the place and even bottomed out and I got dinos at one point. Never ever seen dinos with my live rock tanks.
On Edit- I just realized this post may have felt like a dig at bottle bac dry rockers. Im not sorry. I feel like we can achieve much more efficient outcomes with simply adding healthy corals and all they come with after ammonia is cycled out but that def for another thread we already tried?
