If your starting your first reef than i would do it the usual way, its gonna be complicated dosing everything that could come with a simple water change once a week.

A coral only tank produces very little organic waste, especially if you don't introduce any food to it other than light. Keeping high water quality requires little effort from the tank biology. Add fish and inverts, the balance changes dramatically. I think that might be something to consider when deciding on methods of filtration.

While not the path I would take regarding water changes, I am glad it's working for you. I'm a fan of NY Steelo as well. He has a pretty nice refugium setup, his tank is 90 gallons and his fish load is smaller than yours with two snowflake clowns and a yellow tang. Good luck with your tank and hopefully you keep your yellow tang with an upgrade instead of giving him away. Take care!

Tangs don't need a huge tank, they just need a long one so they can swim laps.

I would have to agree with the OP.... from a few of my previous posts I have stated that I do monthly WC.... the truth is within the last year iv'e changed my water 3 time and the last one was about 6 months ago. Currently have full FOWLR tank with quite a few tangs.... semi-decent CUC and a 4" sand bed. parameters are very stable, nitrates are always around 0-5 (from what I can see)and phosphates sit around 0-0.2.
