the pet store wanted $400.00 or more for live Fuji rock. SO I decided for $130.00 to cure the rock myself. IM not in a big rush and im fine cycling the tank for months if needed.
I also have 2 hydor wave makers 850gph and im looking at a Reef Octopus
My question is I have a MARINELAND C360 100g rated canister filter with the bio trays. I think there are 5.
1. large sponge filters
2. plastic bio balls
3. ceramic noodle like media
4. carbon bags
5. a white filter to filter the water
I don't want to disregard this unit since its 4 months old. Can I use Some trays
for salt water?
this Is my first reef saltwater unit
I'd like to welcome you to the saltwater side of the hobby.
I personally have a 55g reef tank.
I run only a HOB
skimmer, two Jebao WP-25's and a heater of course.
How many pounds of rock did you order? Where from?
It's hard to get your hands on the RO
bh-90. I looked at the same unit when I setup this tank...
I ended up getting a Bh-1000 instead.
As I wanted to buy it from a company like BRS, and not eBay or a sketchy looking site.
Your Powerheads should be a good turnover rate for the tank.
The canister is debatable. It can be used successfully with regular cleaning. Regular deep cleaning I should say.
