Can you explain what salt creep is?? The guy at our lfs
is who recommended it. It's a dedicated reef shop, so should I be concerned about this type of advice from them??
Salt that ends up undesirably on the outside of the tank or on equipment like light coverings. I think if that's HOB
(hang on back type filter), it'll create a lot of splashing which is desirable for aeration in FW
tanks when there's no refugium/sump & protein skimmer. IMO
, the sump & protein skimmer plus running a powerhead that disturbs the surface helps w/ aeration enough. To Each, His Own... something you may have said to the LFS
may have clued him in to recommending a HOB
for your needs. It may not be his fave for SW
tanks but he may've felt it fit your situation.
