    How you maintain a power filter in a saltwater? Is it the same as in freshwater?
  6. grantm91Fishlore VIPMember

    No, i think some people treat it that way but i just use it for water polishing, cleaning the sponge under tap water every few days. I now use it as a fuge to grow cheato. b78ebdea3ceb0afecdb882ad48291932.jpg

    So then what do you use for filtration?
  8. grantm91Fishlore VIPMember

    To polish my water so its crystal, 77ae76eff815cf255365b993f82e489c.jpg it also gives good surface agitation and can be used for much more. Hob filters are great for sw tanks if used correctly. Live rock is my biological filtration.

    Is that stuff worth it? I thought about putting some in my middle compartment of my sump, sorry not trying to hijack the thread.

    EDIT: By stuff I mean Cheato.
  10. grantm91Fishlore VIPMember

    Its totally worth it if you have enough of it to actually do the job its supposed to do, the amount i have is to small but its better than the sponge i had. You can make Cheato reactors too, i hear they are amazing.

    I had my sump full of different sponges and such to help mitigate but it just looks trashy so I removed them, wanted something to help and replace them.

    Cheato mate, if left it will not become a nuisance but the sponges just become a dirty mess id go for it if i were you maybe put spare live rock in if its a big sump thats just what i would do though, I'm high jacking my own thread now too .
  13. Tragic13Valued MemberMember

    Sorry! haha will do! I have like 20-30lbs of live rock right now sitting in a plastic bin with water. I have been trying to give it away for awhile lol!

    As a freshwater person, you have my attention - those tanks are just gorgeous :D
  15. lostheroValued MemberMember

    I started out in freshwater, I just made the jump into salt. The biggest difference I found was the way you do water changes and how much you need to run a reef.
  16. lostheroValued MemberMember

    Do you use a protein skimmer?
  17. grantm91Fishlore VIPMember

    No never had a skimmer on that set up, just got one on my 32g set up a bubble magus qq1 its cool, nice bit of kit.
