  2. Skimmers & other filtration
    I am currently upgrading from an established 33g to a 75g saltwater FOWLR. I have an emperor 400, live rock and sand substrate as my filtering. Any suggestions on what I will need or should have for the new tank? What would be the best type/brand of filtering?

I also have a skimmer that I will put in my sump. I am wondering how to set up the sump for the best filtration. Should I do a deep...

I'm not sure if I want to do corals or not cuz I have not got that far, still in the planning phase of the set up. I already am running a pretty...

    I have a 29g glass aquarium. Its about 8 months old. I was using an AquaClear 50 filter prior to switching to a Reef Octopus BW-1000 HOB skimmer. It seems the water is cloudier now.
