    Has anyone tried the EcoSystem filtration method (www.ecosystemaquarium.com)? How good it is?

    Thanks,

    I have some Miracle Mud that was given to me in a hang on fuge on my 46 Bow....tank is great with lots of growth....I can't say that it is because of the Mud or not...I am still running a bakpak skimmer...I know MACEWEN has his tank running on the EcoSystem and his tank is great...I'm sure he'll chime in on this thread soon...RJ

    Both Kent and Carib Sea have jumped on the mud bandwagon as well. They offer a product that is very similar but far less expensive. I can't say whether the miracle Mud is worth it or not. I just used plain fine grade Carib sea sand in mine and it also seems to be working okay. I couldn't justify sending the outrages prices for the stuff. However I still use a high quality skimmer as well.

    I also have used the Miracle Mud, but over time, have found it to be nothing special if your tank is setup properly. I also used a skimmer alongside it. I also want to add that I didn't use their refuges, instead I built my own with a 33gal tank. I've seen the Kent "Mineral Mud" at a friends house and it is the EXACT same as Miracle Mud yet way less expensive!! If you want to buy some, I recommend the Kent version.
    By the way, Leng SY ( the owner of Miracle Mud) originally in the beginning said you don't need a skimmer but has now changed his opinion to " it is always good to have more than one method of filtering and a skimmer is good to use alongside it"... ( in otherwords, I think he's basically saying that it would be better to use a skimmer without actually admitting it and that he jumped the gun a bit on his first opinion.. heh, heh).
