I have a similar setup and I took my biowheels off when I put fish in the tank. I was using it to polish the water and help with the sediment from my sand. IMO
, with the 45 lbs of lr
and a decent skimmer you are good taking the hob
filtration off since you have the lr
to act as a biological filter. I know there are some ppl here with differing views, but the biowheels are going to turn into a nitrate factory for your reef and I would just take it off.
