I think it should be H2CO3. Also I know in marine waters calcium and
magnesium play important roles in the carbon cycle in marine waters. Do they
come into play in freshwaters as well? Adley's Dynamic Aquaria isn't
completely clear on this aspect. Adley seems to avoid the lighting
controversy by building such large mesocosms that sunlight is the only real
way to light them but he does use MH's to a large extent in his algae turf
scrubbers and MH's and or VHO's in large aquariums. How many of us use the
yeast and sugar water CO2 enrichment method? Hands please! Dynamic Aquaria is
pretty much my bible for building stable aquarium systems. Lots of really
great ideas in this book. Pond enthusiasts should not be without this book,
it contains ideas for fantastic ponds and nutrient management systems.
