Since I am planning a sump, should I wait until I have the sump complete before adding the water, mixing the salt, then adding LR
, and starting the cycle?
Also, what do you folks advise I put into the refugium? I see some growing algae, others have live rock.
I am looking at getting the overflow off ebay, does anyone have any "stay away froms"?
I am guessing the sump itself should be built from scratch, and I probably will use acrylic.
Lastly, what is a good rate of overflow for a 55 gallon tank?
The help is greatly appreciated.
