Long time lurker, first time poster. So I have been trying to do some research on how I would like to set up the 55 gallon (48x12x21) tank I recently got my hands on and have found some differing advice around the boards I have been checking. I want to set it up such that the only filtration I have is from the Reef Octopus HOB
BH100F I am getting and from the live rock I will have in the tank.
I have read various reports stating that anywhere between 1-2 pounds per gallon are sufficient to provide the biological filtration I need to house a FOWLR
set up, and would just like some concrete answers as to how I should go.
Secondly, the lighting situation has always been, and I think always will be, a mystery to me. If I am just trying to keep the basic LR
going, with maybe a featherduster in the tank, would a 48" 2x65W Actinic, 2x65W 10000k Power Compact Fixture be enough?
Thank you in advance for your advice.
