Take note:- the 12 - 20 tank turn over rate was per day, not per hour.

Also, in regards to the algaes removal of NH4 during the day & night cycle, the difference in removal percentages between the two identified abalone farms; Danger Point and Jacobsbaai, indicates there may be other factors involved. Perhaps bacteria played a significant role?
In any case, a mechanism where-by algae takes up NH4 during darkness must be identified.
