Umm, I don't have a clue!   I'm pretty much just following the lead
of other setups I've seen.   Are you talking about avoiding anaerobic
bacteria, or  inviting anaerobic bacteria?  From what little I understand
about it, anaerobic bacteria is useful to consume nitrates, correct?  If
that's the only benefit of it, I really don't want it.  I want the
nitrates to remain available to my plants.
