u should continue with sump....its easy for u in future...hope u read about sump too....btw, just to add....get refractometer instead of hydrometer....its much more accurate then hydrometer....just my 2cents..
Would the sump replace the HOB
? We wanted to do a DIY sump with protein skimmer but don't have the money at the moment. Also with the sump would any other filtration be required? We will be putting air currents throughout the tank so the LR
doesn't get dead spots but without the HOB
would this still be enough flow?
And also, could I use real ocean sand in the tank? I live close and if I could do that it would save us money.
