How you maintain a power filter in a saltwater? Is it the same as in freshwater?

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.

To polish my water so its crystal,

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.
 

grantm91

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 that's just what I would do though, I'm high jacking my own thread now too .

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!

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.

Do you use a protein skimmer?
