Yea, I reading that the plenum in SW was intended to create an anaerobic region under the plate for denitrification. But I would think that the UGF plate allows a modest flow through that if anything may allow anoxic, but discourage anaerobic. I just might give it a go on a 10g test tank...but I'll use landscape fabric between the UGF and pool filter sand and setup a very modest air lift to move just a couple of gallons a day....and see what happens (I expect not much).
