Well, i recently lost my Reef tank... to something related to home renovations. The Tank is an Oceanic 58 gallon w/ center-rear overflow. It currently gravity feeds to a Berlin filter system (sump/protein skimmer) I have in the stand below it.
I realize I wont be using the protein skimmer any longer, but is a reef tank useful for a freshwater setup?
I could convert the sump into a wet/dry using bio-balls, or something of that nature, as I have all the plumbing in place and the necessary pumps.I like this idea, as i can hide the heater down there and I have a 1/4hp chiller attached as well to help keep temps steady.
I have two lighting systems, one single MH pendant, or a Tek 156w, 4 bulb t5 flourescent fixture.
I'm thinking I would like to get into Cichlids, haven't done enough research on them yet, so not 100% sure. My main concern now, is finding out if the reef tank is feasable as a freshwater tank.
