    The reservoir thing I've gone through before, doing the math. It's somewhere on here. But controlling nutrients is the same thing as controlling algae. Less nutrients means less algae.

    The aquarium box style version is my original waterfall version from 2008. I made it open source, and so is used by everyone. The upflows, and the dome/tray waterfalls, and the upcoming new designs, are patented or patent pending.

    Do you links to the patents so I don't step on your toes?

    Great. I think my ideas are far enough removed from your so that there shouldn't be any issue. And this is still just something I'm considering. I have a couple of calls next week with microbiologists to talk about scale and impact. I will let you know how that goes. And maybe you and I could put our heads together as well. You are much further down the path than I am.

    Appreciate your prompt replies. Talk soon!
