Hello all and ty for all the prior info that I have gotten. Time to pick your brains again and in need of opinions.. I am preparing for an octo tank. I have my 60 gal long set up with 60lbs live rock, live sand and shells, clean crew of snails, crabs, clams, and a sand star... I have a fluval 304 rated for 70 gal @260 gal flow rate an hour. I was trying to modify a protien skimmer but didnt really like how that is working out so it is pulled. My question is this.. I have read alot of different views on the use of the protien skimmer or a wet/dry filter or a sump. I live in an apartment so space is a bit limited and not even the 304 will fit under the tank as well as looking to stay as inexpensive as possible. If there are other options I am all for them as well. Thanks, Hey, Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!!
