Triton method, part 10

Adding the GFO reactor

Per my previous post, The Triton Method, Part 9, I discussed how I am noticing some brown algae on the live rock and shells of some of my clean up crew. After a conversation with Tim at Triton, he said, “possibly look at running running some GFO for a while as you may have a false low reading if the algae is taking up some of the PO4.”

Based on the advice, I put my BRS reactor back in along with some BRS GFO. Admittedly, I hope this resolves it, but I really liked not having the reactor running, as I want my refuge to be able to handle as much as possible with less additional equipment.

I will report back and share my results.
