Ok, I've been out of the saltwater tanks for the last 20 years or so but ive decided it's time again to get back into it .
I live in San Diego and have visited two of our well established saltwater aquarium shops for advice getting started again...
My purpose was to set up a 75 gallon triggerfish tank and possibly add something later if it seemed feasible .
One shop advised me to use only about 60# LR
and a protein skimmer and a powerhead , another said to use less LR
and use a canister or another stlye filter ,A skimmer and a powerhead.
Sooooo, I've acquired a eshopps protien skimmer rated for 100 gallons, a powerhead rated for about a 1000 gph
, a eheim ecco2236 rated for 80 gallons and a ac110 HOB
filter standing by.
Ill be using RO
water,...so two very well known shops and two different therorys about getting started,....MY idea would be to use the filters I've already acquired ,with the skimmer and the power head and maybe using around 30-50# of LR
, ... Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated , I just want to get off on the right foot. Thankyou, Dary
