Is it a FO or FOWLR? FOWLR is FO with LR. You dont NEED any LR but really get as much as you want with swimming room for the fish. For the LR to be used as main filtration, get 1-1.5lbs per gallon. I have 130lbs in a 150, but a 220g skimmer and chaeto in the fuge. Also, if ur not using a rodi unit, I would strongly suggest one. I was doing pwcs every week and couldnt get my trates below 40 because my tap was so bad. GL!!!!!
