What about an aqua clear 110? They are really excellent filters and very easy to tweak filter media

I have a fluval 305 on my 75 gallon SW reef tank also. I decided to just take the foam inserts out so that debris doesnt get stuck and create a nitrate factory. I then use "chemi pure elite" as my media. Along with bio balls. Not really sure if I should even use the bio balls, probably should crush coral up instead.
