I am an Old School aquarium owner. ten years ago i was a Proudly Oscar's breeder, then they turned into some Electric BLue Afrikan Cichlids and went OK, then i went Salty, some Perculas and tangs. then some groupers and Angels, then (just for the Fun) i went mureys, from 6mm to 4feet, all was done in a traditional bed filter with a power head and an external aquaclear.
later i added some live rock and it included some trigger fish and a puffer (i know i was a LSOTheSea)it went fine for 3 or more months all levels went as smooth as possible:
nitrites and nitrates ok, ph
ok ,hardness and salinity ok,10% water changes almost uneeded and then i went on vacations and when i got back all i had was a big fish soup with three survivors the murey the grouper and a tang.
then i quitted, now i am ready for a come back, but i missed a lot of changes:
wet dry filters were not an option then,(do you recommend?)
?(used to go Crushed Coral and then some caribean sand)
is it compatible with bed filter and power head?
heres my new set up
tank embeded in wall, i was thinking in a full size bed filter with 1 power head, an external vortex dyathomeas filter, a big aquaclear and a fully submergible heater.
Please any suggestions?, any ideas ?any thing?.....
Sorry for full story but i need to tell..
