    Thanks Capt! I know your have a much larger tank, but how often do you have to change the media? It look quite easy to set up as well. Also, I like to use phosphate and carbon media. Any advice on what to get?

    I change my GFO every 2 months. I get it from www.bulkreefsupply.com and use aprox 1 tablespoon/gal. If you have any measurable phosphate now, you will probably have to change it in 2 weeks at 1st, then in a month and after that every 2 months. If you have any SPS in your tank now, you may want to cut the dose in 1/2 to start. Some corals don't react well to a rapid decrease in phosphate.
