Remove Bio-wheel???
I have an Eclipse Six (six gallon acrylic w/ built in filter, carbon, and bio-wheel). I want to run a little mini-reef with some anemone, damsels, clownfish, shrimp, etc. (Low lighting critters)

My question is, should I remove the bio-wheel and allow the live rock to be my biological filtration? Will my nitrates be too high with a biowheel? Will it be kept under control even if I keep the wheel in as long as I have enough live rock? Any help would be great. Thanks!

kill the biowheel...
Had the same tank it it did alot better with the wheel off...
Just use yoru rock as yoru filtration.. Is the rock from another tank or is it just bare rock? If it's seeded or live from another tank or from then it's fine.. but if your using dry rock and plain non live sand your gonna have issues with the rock. It's not live and unless you introduce some live rock into the tank then it's gonna be dead rock...
