Water changes

Post by jmg32595 on Fri 25 Feb 2011, 8:56 am

SO why do water changes when every thing that is achieved by them can be done and is done
1.remove detrius=filter media,hermite,snails,shrimp
2.remove nitrate,nitrite,amonia,phosphates=refugium,live rock,gfo
3.add trace elements=calcium reactor,adding iodine,strotium,reef essentials
4.fresh water= added by ato

What am i missing?

Its not that i dont do water changes just wondering why i do when it seems every thing that i gain in water change i am doing before a water change.

Please feel free to set me straight and chime in !!
