Im converting a setup from fresh water to salt water...Im rather sure that Ill take an intermediate rout in the meantime and do a brackish water thing...I need to up my limestone content...my question is:
You will find it harder to switch the tank since the concepts of filtration are different. Brackish tanks still use the methods of filtration that freshwater use. I do not think that the bacteria and microlife of the live rock will survive a brackish tank.
If you are buying dry rock and setting up a tank, why not just go marine from the get-start? The startup costs will be relative, considering you are not buying a HOB or canister filter for the marine tank. That money can than be put into a nice Protein Skimmer.
