I agree that lr
and a skimmer are good for a tank but I personally don't see how it pulls out the big stuff I have used this method and it required more work on my part with water changes and keep up. I like the Wet/dry filter myself. If set up correctly you will have crystal clear water and do a water change once every couple of months instead of weeks or even days.
A ton of people will get on me about the wet dry and nitrates, but I tell you, if you checked my tank of 5 years you will not find any nitrates, nitrites or ammonia. (I just checked 10min ago) I have spent a lot of time on researching filters and if done right you will have very good water and it will be crystal clear.
