Protein Skimming & Activated Carbon Secrets

by Bob Goemans

Book Description:


The levels of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) compounds, nitrate, and inorganic phosphorus tend to increase as captive systems age. Even though they are directly associated with unwanted algal growth and diminishing water quality, their impact is not obvious in fairly new systems. The purpose of this booklet is to discuss the utilization of protein skimming and activated carbon as a means in removing or minimizing accumulating aquarium nutrients. Also written for a broad audience. Thousands of these booklets have been sold worldwide and they continue to be in demand.
