Alright so I went to my LFS
and he recommended I do in fact switch to a refugium as my nitrates have been an issue since day one due to my wet/dry not being large enough to handle my aquarium load. As I said I already have a 40 gallon glass tank with panels ready to go, I just need the microalgae, live sand and maybe a piece of rock or two. Got the Marineland 100 skimmer, so I should be gtg!
Now when I do switch from the wet/dry filter should I leave some bio-balls inthe refugium just for some good bacteria to be there? Also what's a good light to use?
There's a pic here of the 40 gallon tank I'll be using for my refugium, I will keep updated pics along the way! Today I am going to pick up some live sand.
