Wanting to convert my 90G to a FOWLR tank. I currently have a Marineland C360 and HOB for 100g. What media should I buy for saltwater? I am thinking of trading my HOB for HOB skimmer. Any thoughts??

I would recommend using live rock for your main biological filtration and I'm sure most on this forum will do also.

That's what I'd do. That's what most of us do
