    Rob - Thanks for the followup. That was an awesome vid Cast and a lot of useful information.

    Gwen - I know you weren't being mean, you can't be mean

    Ahem.... one of the DAVES is gonna speak up..........

    Great vid-cast! I too really appreciated it. I'm glad to help with the "voice only" projects... I'm so not "ready for prime time TV".

    In any case, Rob...yer discounting yourself again (in re: Nervous about release). You are a wealth of information, and a passionate contributor to the hobby. Nobody cares that you had that booger on your chin J/K I guess what I'm getting at is that SOMEONE has to have the intestinal fortitude to do what you are doing. Nerves are one thing, but you HAVE to know what you are doing is nothing less than incredible.

    Keep up the good work! I'm glad to be a TR family member...

    Now... going to check my cultures....

    Dave

    Oh oh oh oh... last minute input from the "geek" over here... YES, Phosphates are high in a fresh culture and you should really refrain from dumping fresh cultures into your systems. However, the various strains of phyto that we hobbyists use are engineering marvels (even on a unicellular level) and it doesn't take very long for the culture to USE that free resource. Often, the lack of 'fertilizer' is reason for 'crash' of cultures. If you have a healthy and seasoned culture, you will find that phosphats (and nitrates etc. for that matter) are spent and therefore your adding the culture to your system (in reasonable amounts) is of no concern. Of course, if you over do it, and turn your reef into a greenwater display, you will have a world of trouble in itself...

    Well it must be some setting on Itunes that has got out of wack because non of my videos are working. I can however listen to them on my Ipod. Weird! Great work with the vid-cast Rob! Can't wait to see more.

    Rob, what an awesome vid!

    I have to say it will come in handy some day in the far off future when I get a larger tank...and would actually need to do something like this. but it was great information to get!


    I think we all know who the first "stalker" will be....or should I say "is"....LOL

    I'll have to try this one. A lot cheaper than DT.

    Is there a certain temperature? I have an unheated basement.

    Thumbs up

    This was a great episode. Thanks for all your hard work. I wish I knew enough to ask an intelligent question. I am learning so much more since finding TalkingReef.

    Great job.......

    Rob - just curious - how do your tank inhabitants react when you feed them the phyto? Do all the coral polyps open up? Can you see a reaction?
