So, I decided today that I am tired of the maintenance on the canister filter on this tank. I have a penguin biowheel 350 that I am going to use. What should I put in it? I have live rock rubble that I can use or whatever you guys think. Please help!

I'd put some rubble at the bottom, purige/carbon next, then floss on top

Thanks Gboy! Appreciate the response. Have never used an HOB on salt before and am tired of maintaining the canister.

Spoonman your tank looks AWESOME! I plan on starting a 29g at the end of this month. The light that you have on your tank how well do you like it? I was planning on getting the same one and just wondering how good it was.

Spoonman do you have any updated pics of your tank since you switched the filtration? Also what kind of powerheads are you using in your tank?
