    Macro-algae, xenia, bivalves and tunicates add biodiversity to your reef system and will remove POM and DOM. POM? DOM?

    POM = Particulate Organic Matter

    DOM = Dissolved Organic Matter

    Very interesting. I'm thinking you do not want DOM to be too low. A lot of inverts like POM.

    CORRECTION: I meant you want some POM in your water.
