Hello! Just digging for advice on a 55 gallon FOWLR
tank we're starting soon. Here is the debate: protein skimmer and live rock with a sump, or protein skimmer and live rock, only? Obviously, the skimmer would go inside the sump, but we were wondering if the sump would be necessary for just a 55 gallon tank. Just curious because it was a recommendation from an LFS
, and it was the first time we had heard of the combination for a (somewhat) smaller tank. And we'll have two powerheads, by the way.
Any advice is appreciated. First post, too. We've just been reading a lot on our own and taking bits of advice off of here. Sorry if this is a repost! Thank you! We're loving AA so far!
