i have brought a new tank that was setup as a marine tank.
i only intend to use it for fresh water but the tank has a huge internal sump at the back of the tank and i plan for some very good D.I.Y filtration and other D.I.Y projects for the tank
the tank will be planted and have a sand floor
Now here are my questions:
Can i use the protein skimmer that come with the tank and would there be any advantage in doing so if so how big an advantage?
Would it be worth me making a sand filter in the back of the tank?
if so what would be the pro's and con's
Can i boil and reuse the sand that come with the tank Dead - live sand?
And is there any way i can reuse the rock and other ornament?
if so how do i clean?
thanks for you reply's in advance
