I know that at least one client with multiple tanks was dosing Vodka and has more Pelagibacteraceae levels. So maybe it doesnt take any special product, just some source of DOC. I'll dig into this tonight and see if there are any significant relationships in the DB yet for carbon sources.Thanks, I'd looked at that table when I sent the samples in but didn't remember this. So they require glycine and DOC?
That's very interesting! And interesting that glycine is not one of the amino acids in Fuel.
I wonder which of the available amino acid supplements contain glycine specifically?
Fuel is the only one I have at the moment, and I don't see specific ingredients for other products online.
Lots of folks swear by AcroPower; perhaps it contains glycine? And what about Reef Energy?
It would be interesting to see if carbon dosing with the addition of glycine supplement increases pelagiobacteria.
Another way of addressing this question is this -
Based on your data, what supplement products are those with sizable pelagiobacteria concentrations using?
I should also clarify that the information about nutritional requirements is not based on aquarium studies. This group requires glycine, but that doesnt mean glycine is limiting for their growth in aquaria. Depending what a person feeds the tank, I think many of our tanks are getting a big dose of mixed amino acids every day from the food itself.
With that said, I'm setting up some nutrient dosing experiments in the lab today to test some of these ideas.
