Mmm.... Had an idea for an experiment.
During phase when we are heavy feeding, it would be nice to know what dinos are actually good at uptaking and removing from our water.
Take a couple hundred mL or so of dinos + water. Microfilter out a few mL with no dinos, and N+P test the water. Then lyse or liquify the dino cells somehow (peroxide? FW? Freeze/thaw? boil?) and N+P test the dino soup. Or better yet, a side by side Triton test for water with dinos filtered out, vs dino soup water. Would love to know what elements (if any) dinos can actually deprive our tank of.

Tons of experiments on dino composition, but none under our tank conditions while dirty method.
