Douglas.Curtis what else do you use for nutes with the hydrozyme? I love the concept of BBs but I'm just trying to avoid slime as cheaply as possible.
sorry if i mistype, Hydrogen peroxide is not pool shock. They are however both sterilizers. i apologize.
one of the definitions of organic is anything derived from living matter. In this case we are trying to remove the bacteria, fungi, algae and other pathogens from the water source. sterilize the water, the medium, then add or rebuild the bacteria WE WANT.
i guess in a way its like a human to take penicillin, then after start taking a probiotic. wipe everything out an rebuild the good.
best of luck in your search to keep it simple. wish it was simple.
man i wish things where simple.....
