I do agree with Mike as well.
Same here, I've always liked canisters and have been and am running an eheim 2215 on my 44 gal
pentagon (15 years) with incredible results. Are you using an HOB
skimmer or do you also have a sump? I'm shying away from sumps because of all of the downsides, power failure problems, noise, not to mention any picture I see of a sump setup it always looks nasty. The other problem is that the sump is open and would be accessible to my Nemo loving girls who are 3 and 5 years old. I'll be looking into a skimmer and live rock. It's going to be interesting setting this thing up
, the live rock around my neck of the woods is going anywhere from 8 to 11 bucks a pound, i have to find an alternate source. I think I'm going to start with the canister and install HOB
overflows and plumb it for simultaneous canister/maybe future sump. Got to get going and continue making my shopping/to-do list. Thanks for your insight.
