Okay, so getting back to me

So, I need to add more LR. Am I okay doing that a little bit at a time, provided I cure per one of the many wonderful sticky threads, here?

Also, I've heard people talk about removing the bio wheel before, but I'm not sure I understand why. As far as I can tell, it's performing a similar function as LR & DSB, so shouldn't it be helpful??

your bio wheel is not even close to a lr/dsb. filters trap small organizims which you need for your tank to live. these things get traped in filters and die, causing high nitrates, because they can't do there job. the live rock eats bact and the sand bed also, in return low nitrates. i use a 500gph aquaflow power firter only for circilation, and to add carbon whan needed. i hope i cleared things up a little for you.
