So we have started the cycling process for our SW
tank. Now I have a question for anyone I'm used to using live rock for our biological media in SW
but a friend of mine told me about K1 media in his sump tank that is SW
. He swears by it but I have only heard of it being used in the FW
tanks. I just need to get some input on this. I have seen but have never used this product which looks like it would work great but I have never heard of SW
hobbyist use it. My friend is sending me some in the mail which he said is overkill for our 150 gallon tank. How would you use this in my 55 gallon sump. Currently I have it built with 4 baffles I was thinking mechanical, then K1, LR
, Then return to tank. Give me your input, the good the bad and the ugly of this. This is going to be all fluidized so the K1 will be constantly moving around with airstones. Don't currently have a protein skimmer yet but will be getting one within a few days currently waiting on some donated material from a healthy SW
tank and possibly a protein skimmer from him.
