OK, so whats the deal with everyone here ragging on undergravel filters and saying that they are no good for saltwater, Personally, i think they are great, i have two aquaclear 301 powerheads on my perfectoflo ugf
and it kept my 55 sparkly clean and all my fish were just as healthy as all yours.
i took the same set up and put it in my 30 gal
and its gonna be a reef tank, still in cycling, but my point is, its cheaper easier and jsut as effective as all your big sumps and huge elaborate protein skimmer / hob
/sump/ canister / everything else, and its cheap and easy and with live sand or rock, or even without it works very well, so i dont understand why everyone is so against them. plus if you throw in a HOB
then you can get all your mechanical filtration.
Why go through all the trouble of building these huge elaborate filtration, when its as simple as a UGF
and a UGF
does the same amount of work, i love it and dont see a problem with it, and just because people here say it isnt any good , i havent seen one valid reason why people shouldnt use them, but everyone here seems to turn new people away and to the more expensive routes, so please, somebody here give me some really good arguments against it, id like to know what the big deal is
