i too like marc from marcorocks.com. he has helped me out already. i say dump the canister filters and spend the money on some base rock. it sounds like you already have the plan for the live rock, now just spend the extra on base rock which will turn into live rock and then you won't need the filters.

Approximately how long will it take for the base rock to turn into live rock when 50 lbs is live and 150 is base?

I`m thinking 4-6 weeks. Maybe a little quicker if that 50 lbs of LR was already cured.

I didn't realize it would be so quick. The difference in price means I will buy mostly Base Rock and defintely not the other way around. Thanks.

I'm always picking up a bit of base rock. Whenever my LFS has some good looking dry pieces I grab them. I must have 150lbs of rock in a tub. Always planning for that next tank...bigger and better!!! I agree with what everyone has said, try and stay away from the canisters if you can. I just use a 20g and a 10g with a 75g wet/dry (no bioballs or sponge) with my skimmer for filtration. The 20g is my fuge with the others just for water volume. If you have a 100g tank and stand you should have room in the cabinet for a sump and fuge. Good luck!!!
