Thanks Subsea.Ask away with the questions.
“Would the addition of the live food cause excessive nutrient issues or would doing water changes help balance this out?”
get specific. What live food? @Dana Riddle adds live phytoplankton to an active reef and as some phyto is consumed yet some continues to grow consuming nutrients.
I think that question came from someone else, but actually I add live phytoplankton which I grow myself. I’m not sure in my system if all of it is consumed or if some also continues to grow. I don’t feed any other live food; rest is frozen or dry.
I don’t do a lot of water changes, really not many and maybe not enough, but I do them enough that can’t say I don’t do water changes at all.
