Through personal experience/experiments throughout the year, here is what we found out that this EcoSystem Method is comprised of
- The miracle mud release 70 + mineral essential elements to stabilize your aquarium water chemistry;
- Phytoplanktons (green singular cell algae) grow in the system;
- This combination of phytoplankton growth and the stabilization of water chemistry lead to the growth of zooplakton in the system (tank and filter). Hence the 'living filter.'
- With the thickness of Miracle mud 1" - 1.5" it become a denitrater filter, ie. fixing nitrate into nitrogen and oxygen gases;
- Miracle Mud provide best nutrient for caulerpa (chaetomorpha) to grow well. With regular trimming this also help controlling nitrate and phosphate as caulerpa use it to build its biomass.
- Our experiments have shown that sps corals grow about 30% faster than other methods when skimmer only run abut 6 hrs per day. Plus better colors too.
- Healthy fish and corals and very low maintenance when your tank run by this living natural filtration system lead to more time for you to enjoy your hobby is priceless!
