| || |
im sorry i didnt mean it to come across so blunt. I am no expert at saltwater tank's but i do know that this site has a wealth of information i would recommend reading as many threads in the saltwater aquarium forum as possible before attempting a saltwater tanks pasfur has recently written a great article aswell on filtration in salt water tanks. Again im sorry if what i saw before came across as really blunt and rude it is always better to ask questions then to not ask them at all.
jtf00, what kind of tank are you doing? Is it Fish Only (FO), Fish Only with Live Rock (FOWLR) or full Reef? This will help us to tell you the basics of filtration, although geo is right: Live Rock, Live Sand & a Protein Skimmer are the keys to success in this hobby. Also, how big is the tank and what kind of lighting do you have? Do you have a sump? Heaters? Let us know.
I've seen your pictures and am very familiar with your tank. I would rather cut off my little finger with a butter knife than place a wet dry filter on that tank. You have the basics of the tank in place already. A nice deep sand bed and a good live rock structure. Why would you ruin this with a wet dry filter that will cause your nitrates to increase, phosphates to increase, and alkalinity to drop?
