Same here; I'm not really knowledgeable about salt water fish-keeping
techniques, but some of the ones I have read about intrigue me, like the
Ecoystem Method that was started by Leng Sy, with modifications by Michael
Paletta. I think that it would be interesting to try either his mud or a
similar fine, silty mud in a sump along with a variety of algae that would do
as well in the as the Calerpa sertuloides species which was in the sump. I
read about it in old issue of Aquarium Fish, the Nov. '97 one. This method
seems like it would be interesting to try to see how it would work in
freshwater, with the appropriate modifications of course.
