I don't know if you can really have too much bio filtration. IMO, it wouldn't hurt.
I have an eclipse system and it has a bio-wheel in it, that goes along with my 200 pounds of live rock! (kidding, only about 50 pounds, it's a small tank)

Your lfs should have tha sand. You can get the sand online if need be. Isn't a wet/dry the same thing as a sump only with mechanical filtration in it? Unless a canister filter is considered a wet/dry system. I always thought a wet/dry was a sump with a biowheel in it?
Good Luck,
Brian

Have the filters and filtration running. This way the bacteria can colonize in your filter media. The water flow will also help bacteria colonization around the tank, substrate and any ornamental material. Have the skimmer run as well, I believe it will help the skimmer work better when you first add fish(this is what I have read about skimmers, may be wrong though)
Good Luck,
Brian

everything should be running, just like it will be when you have fish in it.

I didn't realize you were replacing the 55 with the 65! I just assumed you were going to have both, I was thinking it was quite an undertaking for the first sw tank, but hey, once I got started, it just took off.

So...Ace.... looks like you and Joester has something in common also! (Jesus started with a 40 and returned it for a 58G.)
