How viable will phytoplanton remain when you use skimmers and pumps to move water. I was thinking of having multiple tanks overflowing into each other with different cultures in each with a large skimmer in the sump.
Will this work?


after repetitive head on desk banging
NO!!!
NO!!!
NO!!!

that skimmer will remove all of the phyto, and at the same time nicely remove most of the phyto food!!

the "combined" aproach wont work one will out compete for space and you will have 1 algae type

mixing water means contaminants if you reuse water like that at all it needs to be specially filtered
