I posted this in another forum, I think it was the wrong one. Sorry if you already read it.
Hello, I have had a freshwater setup for 5 years and I'm ready to take the jump to saltwater. It will be a 75gal tank and I'm not sure if I want to attempt a reef tank just yet but I want to keep my options open. My question is I have 2 emperor 400 filters that I would like to use to help keep the costs down. Would this be possible? I have been reading that you toss out all the cartridge junk and bio filters and put lr
in the filters and just run them. Is it really that simple or am I missing something? Is that and a protein skimmer all the filtration I would need? Like I said I'm new to saltwater so I don't know much.
