Or possibly dealing with the same nutrients at twwice the concentration.  That
depends of course on the source of the nutrients.  If it's fish, the concept,
while it seems valid, can increase the complications of tank maintenance that
fish require.  Also you should be sure to use a submersible heater, if one is
