Some of the facts stated there seem to be in direct conflict with what I have read elsewhere.

I read the Fritz Zyme article and did not see anything which stood out as incorrect information.

What did you guys find about the article that seemed inaccurate?

Larry, I think there is a mis-identification of which bacteria are responsible for nitrification in freshwater aquaria, which would, it seems, tend to lead the hobbyist to incorrect assumptions regarding "the most appropriate tank pH" - and possibly even into inappropriate /hasty actions upon seeing pH drop.

I did not notice that.
Since none of us ever cultures filter bacteria on Petri dishes and rely on nature to take it's course it is a small deal.
The nitrification bacteria which are able to adapt to a given set of conditions are those we depend on.
