Nitrates for saltwater critters is bad at much lower levels than with freshwater critters. Moniter and ifn you have excess nitrates in your tank then remove your biowheels.

As long as you take care of your tank's water changes you should not have a problem with the wheels/nitrates.

IMO, leave the wheels on. I have never had a nitrate problem, and I have ran them since day one. Beneficial bacteria grows there.

only problem i've had with my emperor is the spray bar tends to clog faster on a SW than on a FW...but a pipe cleaner will fix that i suppose.

Don't dream it, be it.
