Summer and Alyssa's Daddy
More and More I have been looking at setups That seems to not meet the 1.5 pounds per gallon. What I mean is that contrary to everything I have been taught, people are using sumps with refugiums with plenty of live rock but are now favoring a more open type of reef with tons of swimming room. Would anyone have an idea if they are just misplacing the live rock in refugiums or sumps or is the 1.5 pounds really just a high end scale of biological filteratioin. The reason I ask is that I saw a 125 gallon long picture with three islands. Each one had a different types of corals due to the lights directly above each rock pile and looked too cool. But definatly did not have 1.5 pounds per gallon. More like 50 pounds at best.
