I am setting up a fowlr
with the idea of eventually going reef. I have been given a 55 tank and plan on using it. As the price was right. I have a bunch of equipment and need advice on what route to take.
First sand or no sand?
I have a protein skimmer. I have 3 canister filters and a small sump tank (looks homemade, acrylic with a few baffles, about 36 long 12 wide, 18 deep.) Thought maybe a combo of the two would be good, however I keep reading that canisters are bad, so I'm not sure.
Next is I have a tank full of dead live rock. I read about giving them an acid bath to reincarnate them. Then figured on splitting them between tank and sump with a few LFS LR
thrown in to seed. Sound like a good plan?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
