No live rocks nor live sand, nothing live but the poor fish...
Huh, now I'm confused b/c I've read that you're not supposed to change water till the tank is fully cycled, however I trust your expert advice. Nice fish tanks on your web page... So do you use the powerheads soley to simulate water currents/improve water flow? I'm thinking that's prly an excellent idea...?
I'll check out the Remora's, I've heard mixed reviews, lots good, but some say the pumps die quickly. Do you find that to be true? I almost bought a SeaClone 100, but am glad I didn't, nothing but bad reviews...
Also, I just read up on the Berlin method article on this site and now I'm wondering if a protein skimmer is the best choice for a 2nd filter as the Emperor 400, being mechanial, will lessen the efficency of the skimmer. For about 100-150 I want to get the best 2nd filter (of any type) for the money I can... Whether the CPR Bak Pak, or Remora, or a canister-maybe a fluval?
