Hello I got a 90 gallon tank I am just starting up soon. It's just gonna be fish only(for now). But I have lots of live sand, I am proably going to start with a few pieces of live rock then add the rest in dry rock. I don't plan on adding fish for a few months. So in my 30 gallon sump I was thinking about spilting it into thirds. And do one side with a wet dry and skimmer. Return in the middle. And fuge on the other side to try to take care of nitrates down the road. Have anyone tried this before running a wet dry and a refugium in the same system??
I would rather have a skimmer. LR and a skimmer is all you need. LR to house the beneficial bacteria and a skimmer to remove dissolved organic compounds.
+1 I would agree. A skimmer can be your best friend in getting organics out of your water and it's easy too. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
