I have been reading as much as I can on this topic and still find myself confused.
I have a 55 gal
with a light bio-load. I have 100 lbs of live rock and cc
bottom. There are three power heads in the tank for circulation.
My question is, I also have a HOB
Penguin 330 filter. Do I use the carbon filter cartridges and bio-wheels or not? I have read that it is better to remove both and use some small pieces of LR
. Do I need this filter at all?? It's a little noise.
