Well... I can truly only speak as to how my setup is. I use LR
because I was told that bio balls would raise the nitrates. Not good... LS
takes care of that problem. Plus... you CANNOT overfeed...especially without a cleanup crew. It just decomposes and has no where to go except the filter...which results in ammonia.
Here's the question... What do you want to do? If you ask me... the LR
method is the best... it works for me, but this is my first SW
tank so I didn't do another method. The next question is, what is your budget? LR
will cost... probably about $300 for the 112 # of LR
you need... If you want to go that route I'll help with what know about...
Check out my website... I chronicled my tank from start to finish...
