On Sunday July 12th at 8pm est, 7pm cst, and 5pm pst, Albert and Joe will be taking Algae Scrubbers with a special guest Brian (Santamonica) from Santa Monica Filtration.  Nutrient reduction is a major concern for all types of aquarium keepers.  Installing devices like these can make a big difference in keeping nitrate and phosphate under control.

 SantaMonica is in Santa Monica, California USA (Los Angeles area), and started his first reef aquarium in January 2006 when an intern at his office suggested an aquarium to fill an open space in the hallway. He hired an aquarium service person ("fish guy") to set up and maintain the aquarium, and with six months everything was dead. Then he hired a second fish guy to fix it, and within another year everything was dead again. So he started reading up on filtration in the discussion forums, and since he needed a username for them, just chose the name of his town because it was not fancy. This was in 2007.
