Just found this site a few days ago. All I can say is WOW. I had a FO SW
setup for about two years but took it down before I moved a few years ago. Had some catastrophe just prior to that. I wish I had found this site back then. I've learned more here in the last week than I did the entire time I had my tank set up last time. Getting it back up and running this weekend and taking into account things I learned last time and the MANY things I learned on here. First thing I'm doing is taking it SLOW. The other thing I'm doing is using LR
with my setup. Last time I had friends that were doing FOWLR
setups, but either didn't know, or couldn't articulate why they had LR
and thus said I didn't necessarily need it. Now I find out that is part of the reason my nitrates were always through the roof. I have some questions related to all of this, but I'll post them in the appropriate place. All I can say at this point is that this board is full of very knowledgeable and extremely helpful people. Thanks in advance for all of the help I'm sure I'll get and need, and it's the people on this board that really make the hobby enjoyable and easier.
