Yes, please keep us posted. The refugium concept promotes plants as water purifiers not just tank ornaments. Just like wetland marshes purify waste water (my book, p 143), a refugium will process wastes from fancy guppies. It is all in the plants-- and emersed plants do it better.
Currently, I am writing an article on daylength v. plant growth, which I want to publish in The Aquatic Gardener
(for starters). I'm sick of hearing that plants need a "rest period" when all the scientific literature I've found says otherwise.
Your thread ties in with that, because based on scientific literature the refugiums should ideally be run 24 hr per day for maximum plant growth.
For article, I would love to use your experience (and a couple pictures) as a practical application of 24 hr day daylength info and the refugium concept itself. If you are interested, feel free to contact me at: [email protected]
