Hello Everyone, I've been working on a little project and wanted to know your opinions and thoughts. In our tanks, water movement is essential for a healthy system. The air being mixed into our waters by surface movement and protein skimmers and the like is used by our coral, fish and inverts, but what would happen if instead of water movement, we used pure oxygen? Or some kind of SCUBA breathing gas like trimex? I know its much more practical and probably more natural to use flow, but just for the sake of curiosity I'd love to see. If one used a water splitter to get hydrogen and oxygen gas and injected the 02 into the water, I wonder if the oxygen would allow the polyps to grow larger, much like insects in a more oxygen rich atmosphere. The limiting factor concerning insect size is the ability to move gasses throughout their systems, and that's why they're much smaller today, does that apply to all invertebrates that rely on ambient gasses to breathe?
