I prefer my 200 lbs of LR to handle the filtration chores.
As a kind of personal preference i would like my tank to look a little bit more "open" So i'm shoot for closer to the 1-1.5 lbs/gal and looking for alternative forms of natural filtration to make up the difference. Thanks for the link as well. Working my way through that article.

the grain size of the sand is crucial as if the bacteria is compacted too much you will end up with black sand releasing sulphur dioxide.
Yeah i'm looking at having a variety of different grain sizes which will include a very coarse sand in order to keep things from compacting to much.
