I would also be curious to...

Regardless of what all of these scientific reports say, do you honestly think that it is more efficient to allow nutrients (food and waste) to stay in the tank long enough to break down so it can be...

Trust me I have tried refugiums and there is more maintenance than that. You are basically having to keep two tanks in order to try and maintain one. Sounds like fuzzy math to me.:D

I agree. Old Town Aquarium had one this year and I believe Reef Tank Supply also had one and both were less than $2500.

I love how your claims keep changing in order to continue to try and pass the blame onto Vortech.

I thought I provided a formula.
Why should they spend thousands of dollars in travel costs to prove his tank is underbuilt when he has already given the data that proves it.
