I was wondering which filtration system I should go with...
I have a 75 gallon tempered tank so, no drilling. I am getting different answers from all over mainly LFS
. So here goes, if i use a wet dry filter with an over flow is there any way to avoid flooding the floor if there is a power outage?
Could I use a canister filter with equal results?
I have read enough to know now that which ever way I go, I will need a skimmer. And also people answering will want to know which tank I will be setting up ( reef tank).
I am setting a budget of 500.00 to get the few things listed above ie. filtration and skimmer. Is this realistic? Can I do a good system for less and use some of that money for lighting and live rock?
Ok, another question if i go with a 50\50 mix of live and hirocks, how long should I allow the tank to cycle before adding fish?
I think I am going to go with power compacts for the lighting. I am going to mainly start with soft coral but will most likely move to hard coral.
Any help and suggestions would be greatly appericated.
