Over the next few months, we are going to be setting up a new tank, 125-150 gal
community. Its been several years since I've really been in the hobby & I know things change. I am looking for advice on a good biological filter. I've never been a big fan of wet/dry filters. My current community tank is ran off of a sand filter. I know many hate these for various reasons. I've had good luck with them, in relation to relativly low nitrates (given the type of fish I keep, triggers, lions, tangs.)
What would be recommended? Building something is not a problem, given that over half of the equipment I have is home made. Several hundred pounds of live rock isn't an option for budget reasons.
