Comment est venue votre passion pour les aquariums?

MARK: My interest in the hobby has always been near as my grandmother used to take me to fish stores when I could barely even walk. I had various fresh water tanks and fish only tanks growing up and through college. When my wife and I got married we honeymooned in Bora Bora. The next week I came home and started down the road of reefkeeping.

Comment avez vous connu les produits Prodibio?

MARK: I found out about Prodibio as I was spending a lot of time of various reef forums and I was tying to keep up with some of the newer methods of adding biodiversity and maintenance methods from Europe. Over time I singled out Prodibio and started to watch successful reefkeepers that I knew continued their success using Prodibio products. I started slower than most, but over time using Prodibio products were just as naturals as doing water changes for my system.

Comment entretenez-vous votre aquarium?

MARK: I am a believer of frequent water changes. It allows me to keep the parameters of my tank stable enough week to week to allow for a stable environment for the reason so many of us are enthralled by this hobby, the colorful corals.
Along with my weekly water changes I alternate dosing biodigest and bioptim on a weekly basis. I also vary the amount of of biodigest and bioptim that I add. Let me explain by giving you an example:

Sunday use of biodigest - 2 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use ofbioptim - 3 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use of biodigest - 1 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use ofbioptim - 2 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use ofbiodigest - 2 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use ofbioptim - 3 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use ofbiodigest - 1 vials
Midweek use of reefbooster - 1 vials
Sunday use ofbioptim - 2 vials
and so on...

I also run small amounts of GAC in a media reactor and if needed, I can control the limis of po4 in my aquarium system by the use of gfo. I like to have a lot of fish in my tank so there is plenty of nutrition for my corals. This is one of the main reasons that I was drawn toward the prodibio products as they help assist in the exportation or nutrients.
