Live Rock and Base Rock

Recommended Posts

Is it a must to have live rock in your tank, or can you have it in your sump?

And use all base rock in the tank itself?

Would only the live rock in the sump provide enough bio filter?

Any help is greatly appreciated8O

I would like to end up with reef system:)

base rock will turn into liverock in a few months, but its best to seed the system with live rock to get the microbes IN there to colonise the base rock.

If you want reef, then you will need base or live rock for structure anyway.

Make it look good first of all, dont get too caught up in % or kg of rock needed!

yes it will seed many organisms into the tank if placed in the sump BUT its best to 'crown' base rock structures with a few bits of live rock.

MH 250watt are the leaders in reliable lighting, but LED is the new kid on the block and may just take the crown.

Just needs to prove itself as a stayer
