To start off.. I have a 55 Gallon (wanna-be) reef aquarium.
I have had all types of little things in there over the past 2 years. About a year ago, when my tank was doing well, I had an anenome explosion... lol
Poor thing got sucked up into a filter tube when i was cleaning the tank, got chewed up into pieces and then spit back into the tank.
Everything died except for the starfish and shrimps.
well.. time has passed and i have just found out, being new to all of this, that the filters I have been using were not the correct filters.
Emperor filters that came with the tank.. (pet-co)"big mistake"
anyway... i have someone giving me betetr advise than the noob-fishers at pet-co finally and boy.... i have to change my whole set-up now.
He is customizing me a sump (which I didn't have), i have to remove the olf filters and replace with the two (2) new filters that are being provided with the sump and add a can filter for more water flow.
My concern is the little things I have living in the tank at the moment.
When i make this switch over, will they be too stressed out to survive the change of flow and what-not?
My friend told me that he is totally surprised that they have lived this long in my tank.
i dunno... just new at this and any advice is appreciated.
