The wet dry I'm looking to get off a friend it is a ProClear Aquatics Pro 150 Series Wet Dry with built in protein skimmer. Will this be a good filter or do I wait and spend the money to build a refugium.? Thanks for all your feed back I appreciate it.
The link gives info on the wet/dry

I bought a new ProClear Pro 75 and had nothing but trouble with the skimmer. I found it nearly impossible to get adjusted. Skimate production was not good either.

I spoke to the owner several times and he just jerked me around for 2 months till I gave up. Their LifeTime guarantee is worthless.

Hopefully, you will have better luck with the larger skimmer in the 150. If not, you may have sufficient room in the wet/dry to put in an aftermarket skimmer. My 75 was too small for that.

Skip the bio-balls and put LR rubble half way up in the chamber. Keep the water level in the wet/dry high enough to cover the rubble. However, make sure there is enough room left in the wet/dry so that when you shut the pumps off, the back draining water from the tank does not overflow the wet/dry box.

Thanks Charlie. I'll use your advice on the rubble rock. I was thinking the same thing. I have seen the filter in operation and the protein skimmer works good. I want to make sure I get the water level right so it doesnt overflow in the case of a power failure. Thanks again
