Alright, as I mentioned in this post: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=96626
My tank is having a "new life." I recently sold back all my predator fish because I wanted to get more colorful, smaller fish. The groupers were cool and all, but they just grow too big for my 90G.
To tell you the truth, I'm a bit scared. The groupers were so hearty that it was probably close to impossible to kill them.
Right now, I'm kind of recycling my tank. I did about a 45% water change and just letting it get back up and running. All the live rock and soft corals are still doing amazing. Otherwise, my tank is fish-less.
So... I'm thinking that this is my opportunity to really make my setup better. There's no worry of killing fish
Right now in my wet/dry I have "stock" bioballs.
Here are the options running through my mind. Starting with the least costly...
1- Take 50% out and wash them
2- Take 50-75% out and replace them with better bio balls. Something listed here: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...?N=2004+113804
Not really sure what to get there though. Cell-Pore BioMedia is recommended, but really don't know where it's placed...? You then have the CoralLife balls, BioMate, etc. Based on name only, I'd say CoralLife is the better option.
3- Get live rock rubble. Obliviously will cost the most. I've heard some cons/pros.
So, hoping someone could tell me...
If I were to get new bioballs, what would be best? That's a ~$15 change. Or, should I just scrap the entire idea and go with LR
