Hello, I have a 75 gallon FOWLR
setup so I have good knowledge about how to set up the tank. Currently the tank I want to switch is a 10 gallon cichlid tank.
I have an AquaClear Power Filter on it for 5-20 gallon aquariums. I was wondering if I could replace the filter media and use it for a saltwater tank. I was thinking about hanging it on the back of my wet/dry filter for the 75 gallon and letting saltwater flow through it for a while to get the saltwater ran through it, is that a good idea?
Also I am thinking about putting 10-15 pounds of live rock in there, would the live rock and the HOB
filter be enough filtration along with 10 pounds of live sand? If not what do you suggest?
Also do you think I could use 10 gallons of water from the FOWLR
tank so I don't have a new tank syndrome cycle? Would that pretty much bypass the new tank cycle if I left the HOB
filter running in the wet/dry filter for a week or two. Do you think I would also need a small biological filter along with the HOB
filter even though it already has a foam insert, carbon insert, and biomax insert?
