I want to run the Berlin method (do they still call it that or is that now considered standard?) on my 55 gallon tank. I've got 20 lbs of rock right now, 10 live, 10 base, with another 40 lbs from LR
.com coming in today. I plan to add another 20 lbs or so in the near future.
I am running an Emperor 400 with the biowheels removed and with Kent-brand Reef Carbon and an Aquarium Systems protein skimmer with a Rio 600V water pump feeding it.
Does this filtration sound good? My last reef had a W/D system and I always had nitrate problems. I'm using RO
water for water changes. What do you guys/gals think of my filtration system? I have room under the tank for a refugium someday also because my phosphates were running around 0.5. Thanks in advance.
