    I want to upgrade my filtration to a wet/dry system. I'm researching and every filter claims to be "the best" or "perfect". I'm just wondering which to buy for a 55 gallon tank that wont cost me an arm and a leg (no more than $250). Tank is not drilled so i will buy the hang on pre-filter box...

    Hey guys, I tried searching but couldn't find any of the answers I was looking for. After debating between dry vs live sand, I decided to go with some of the dry sand from Marco Rocks. My first question is how should I go about rinsing it before putting it in my tank (only live rock, no fish...
