Q&A Letter Spotlight

Kim Koch writes to Bob about:
Trickle Filters, Fish-Only & Plenum

Dear Bob, I have been operating an aquarium service in the LA area for the past ten years. The plenum filter system has seemed to work well with the invert dominated tanks. My question is to what advantage could the plenum system be used in a fish only aquarium. Many of my clients enjoy large angels, tangs, eels and groupers. Housing these animals and processing their waste would need a large bio filter such as a wet/dry. Could you (or would you) use a plenum with a wet/dry? Thank you, Kim Koch [response] Hi Kim, That's a good question and I can understand where you're more.

As for this ‘ more.
