    Carbon dosing usually does cause growth to go light, or clear. I have just seen many screens growth more and thicker when they were not so big.

    I think you mean reduce inorganics. Not organics. You want as much organics in the water as possible to feed the corals.

    It's just a way of getting the light intensity higher across the screen, without getting a bigger reflector for the lamp. But it might just fill in by itself as nutrients come down.

    Well you could cut the screen vertically in half, and tape of the rest of the slot. This will concentrate the growth in front of the light, and increase flow too.
