This article may interest you.

The above and other links can be found at a website called the Skeptical Aquarist. Lots of great information to nerd out on.

There is a book called, I believe, Advanced Water Chemistry, authored I believe, by Burgess.

Have always found great reading there. If you are really into "nerding out" you should also check out google scholar (scholar.google.com). As far as the net in general; get your list of critical key words, figure out what words you don't want, and use regular google but do an advanced search (boolean searches are your best friend).

I have a wet/dry filter and wanted to know how often I should rinse in aquarium water if at all the bio balls? Thanks for your help?
