Got a few questions. I've got a 120 gallon tank currently cycling. Right now there is 80# live sand and 20# live rock. There is an Eheim 2080 and I've got a Hydor power head that moves 1050 gallons an hour. I will be adding more live rock as budget allows, but well before adding live stock. I intend to get 90-100# more LR
.I do not have a sump and my tank is not drilled for overflow.
I was wondering if there ws a stand alone protein skimmer not hob
, but something I could plumb in without a sump.
Do I have enough substrate and if I need to add more, does it need to be life sand.
Finally, I couldn't really find a step by step on setting up a tank' so I winged it and assumed for ls
the water needed to be in first then add ls
. It got REALLY cloudy, so I changed all the water, the bag saino rinsng need, so I didn't. It was CaribSea ls
. After adding in the new water, it still gets really cloudy, if I need more sand, how can I add it without the dust storm?
Really love the info I've found here. So far, by far the most informational.
Looking forward to your help. Thanks a bunch.
