Hi just joined here because I'm just starting my first salt water aquarium, I've been a avid freshwater keeper for about 4 years, and I've been pretty successful breading red Texas cichlids and convicts, and I've now taken the dive and brought a 60 gallon tank to start my salt water aquarium, I've been reading a lot of books about it and the problem is their advice differs so much, so here I am
As I say I've got a 60 gallon fluvial Roma, v2 300 protein skimmer, v3 uv
steriliser, fx5 canister filter (filters up to 1500 litres), 2 powerheads, 2 wave makers, 300w heater, and I think it's called a aqua life lighting unit it's got 4 tubes in it, 2 blue and 2 White, hydrometer, various test kits
Just after a bit of advice on what media to put in the filter?
how to set the power heads, as in does one fire to the right for half a day and then the other firing to the left?
Sand, what's the best to use? Live?
Thanks, sorry to waffle on
