It's called the Ray 2. Nice spread and high PAR.Glucose is naturally in lakes and that was an example!
"indicate that the algal uptake of glucose and acetate in Lake Erken, Sweden, is always less than 10% of the bacterial uptake, even though the algal biomass may be orders of magnitude greater than the bacterial. Two new types of bioassay employ the kinetics of bacterial uptake systems as the measuring reaction. Acetate and glucose were found in 1-10 @mg/liter concentrations in the several natural waters tested.
These bacteria utilize the glucose to make CO2. That is what you wanted. You can also just simulate this by adding sugar yourself.
I was pre-medical, so, may be these things make more sense to me. I do not know. Either way I did enjoy and wish you would trust sugar over toxic substances, but, I digress. Good luck to you both.
Also, I ended up with 3 planted + on my 75 gallon because of my really really thick forest. And yes I do dose sugar once every 3 days. I do recommend them! But, I am waiting for some better LED next time, higher wattage... Wish they made a planted + like that!
The article is nice, just no references to compare to and no evidence showing me that that is indeed what is happening. It's just hearsay to me until there's more substantial proof.
