Not sure I guess. I used to have a 100 gallon rubbermade sump with an 8 inch deep sand bed and 300 lbs of live rock for my 90 gallon tank. I used to joke that I could relieve myself in the sump and not have any algae issues
Since the move to Detroit which left me with a very small sump/fuge
, I've been fighting algae issues non-stop and my corals are not nearly as healthy (though my laziness in water changes does not help). I've tried different skimmers before, and I'm looking into one again, but I've not had much luck with skimmers. Bashee makes a "Bio-Reactor", which is basically a media reactor with small bioballs (or so it looks). I'm assuming it breaks down amonia to nitrates leaving the liverock, DSB in the display and the refuge to eliminate the nitrates. So, I guess I'm looking for a cheaper, DIY, version of that.
May try the DBS in a bucket, but I have a 6" DSB in my display tank right now.
