You could use it but keep in mind with full media they are only rated at 160 GPH
. In a SW
environment you are looking for closer to 10x GPH
of the tank volume so it will definately need supplimenting with PH
You should also check into the possibilities of LR
as a main biological filter and skip the power filter altogether. As well as the possibility of a sump
. There are many types of filtration and each should be researched properly, prior to beginning. >>Here
<< is a link that will give a brief rundown on the various types.
While researching, also try to determine the "direction" the tank will eventually follow. FO FOWLR
or reef. Some types of filtration work better/worse with diferent tank types.
