Alright, hopefully someone can answers these questions or advise
We got the 75 gal
tank set up yesterday. The wet/dry filter is running great. Only thing in the take is water and salt. We have a Rio 2800 SS pump running the return at the moment. I know Rio is not regarded very well but it came with some other stuff. I would like to get something quieter and more reliable though. This will be a good back up.
My main question is on LS
. This tank will not house any inverts. We currently have 70lbs of aragonite and 2 bags of aragalive. I had hopes of finding a cheaper solution(play sand) but we have it so we will probably just use what we have. I am not sure of the depth it will give but we have seen an ad for 13 lbs of LS
from a reef tank that looks good. Would seeding our aragonite with this live sand be useful at all?
Also, would adding 45lbs of LR
help or just be decoration? We have not determined the decor of the tank yet. We will add some stuff from our current tank but not much. I was thinking LR
and some fake plants might be nice but I don't want to foot the bill for a full FOWLR
set up. Maybe later on more LR
can be added, maybe not. Will having a bit of LR
and bioballs hurt at all?
Thanks again for the help/suggestions. I have spent a lot of nights reading old posts lately
