Saltwater wet dry filters

I have a 75gal. tank and would like to make it saltwater. I am new to saltwater and was woundering if a eshopps wd-75 filter was a good way to go? If anyone has an advice as to any other types of filter it would be greatly appreciated.

Very expensive for a wd-75. Any live rocks?

edit: Never mind. I saw your other post about keeping FO system.

You could also use a canister and/or HOB filter. Both use less electricity and cheaper to buy.

wet dry filter

I am only going to do fish for now. I will look into those filters that you recommened. I found that Eshopps on ebay for $180 with everything. Thanks for the advice.

Everything means including a pump? You will also need a return line for the water to travel back to your tank.

You also might want to double check that it includes the overflow unless your tank is drilled.

Buy your own pump. The bundle comes with a overflow kit. The concern for flooding will always be present with the overflow kit.

The wd systems include a overflow. Maybe the ebay item does not include one. This is the part that get the water from the tank to the sump.
