Q&A Letter Spotlight

Tony Schall writes to Bob about:
Algae Control & Calcium Reactors

Dear Bob: I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and holiday spirits. I am attaching some photos taken of my 58 gallon tank. As a person whom has been in the hobby for over 30 years, with over 20 years in the saltwater side of the hobby, the one lesson I learned very early on is that the longer you do this, the more questions you have. I have also learned, and taught (either students, or fellow hobbyists) that the only stupid question is the one not asked. So be patient with me, please. A little history on my tank: A 58 gallon Oceanic with a 20 gallon sump. more.

I was especially intrigued with his new and unique spray nozzle technology (U.S. Patent #6,156,209). Testing of first generation EV models (there were three models ­ EV-90; more.
