Thats alot EVERYONE!
I have a couple more questions for you guys:
- If I wanted about 3" of sand substrate in my 55 gallon tank, approx. how many pounds of sand do you think that would be?
- Since I'm not going to have live rock for biological filtration, would I need to put any special kinds of media into my canister filter? Right now I use Bio-Chem Zorb (which removes dissolved organic waste and other pollutants), and Micro filtration pads (which remove fine waste and sediment, and also helps clear up the water). Would it be OK to just put the same type of media in that I'm currently using for my FW
I really appreciate all the help you guys have given me, I feel like I'm ready to start my tank cycling. I just ordered 60lbs. of base rock, and I'm going to order 2 Maxi-Jet 1200 Powerheads, a CPR Bak Pak Skimmer, as well as white marine sand, just as soon as I know how much to order.
