Wet-Dry filter. The problem is, It filters out the calcium for the corals & you have to keep adding calcium. The cost go up. Also you can’t keep pregnant sea horse’s because when they have the babies, the babies usually go over & down the the wet-dry. So now, I will stay with a closed tank & ender-gravel & live rock.
What is your opinion?
