I have a 110 Gal
tank i am looking to set up a SW
tank. I have 2 power heads (350 and 500 GPH
), 2 canister filters (Rena XP3 350GPH each), a UV
sterilizer (9 watt helical) and a pritien skimmer.
I am hoping to get water into the tank and cycle it in the next week. But I am eing held up by trying to figure out the best media for the canister filters. I chose them over a wet/dry sump system since I have a toddler around. But the local "experts" here in Vegas are giving me different solutions as to what type of media to use int he filters.
The tank will be fish only. I also have new fan cooled programmable lighting (256W UCF, w/ 2 true sunlight, 2 blue acitnic and 4 blue LEDs). I will have live sand and live rock in the tank as well. About 3-4 inches of sand (~150 lbs) and 100 lbs of live rock.
Any solutions or recommendations? Thanks...
