well ive been a troll here for about a week and figured it was about time to sign up and say hi :D
ive read and read, and read.... and read, and read some more, there are a just a few things that im alittle stuck on tho..
i recently bought a 29 gal
~( would have been larger but ugh, no room )~ and soon to buy a 10 gal QT
as far as protein skimmers / bio wheels go.. i understand that bio wheels are super nitrate factories and i should shy away from them, but can they be used together at al with LR
or wouldnt that create to much for the system to handle? .... just curious if a combo of the 2 would be better than just one or the other
im looking to have live sand and rock... maybe about 25 - 30 lbs of rock and 2-3 inch SB.. what all goes with cleaning them off occasionally? i read turkey basters worked well, but what about the sand, can a clean up crew manage that alone, or is there something that also needs to be done about it?
also one last thing, sorry lol.. can anyone point me to some good places to buy LR
from?.. my LFS
does sell it, but not in large supply, and ive looked around alot at places but dont know for sure whos the better place to buy from
im asking questions i prolly already know the answer to but .. id rather be safe and ask, and get my Hi AA in there :) ... and yes i hate capitol letters =P
