Robert I would just like to say you have a great site
and I especially like the forums.

I think good circulation and O2 content are essential
in the planted tank.  High levels of O2 content are
produced by the plants themselves during
photosynthesis, so I don't think it is necessary to
worry about this parameter unless your plants are not
thriving.  I have noticed that poor circulation can
contribute to a BGA outbreak.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all,
