    FW to SW changeover

    Anyone used one of those big 5 gallon eheim filters on their saltwater setup?

    If so, what do you put in it for filtration? Standard like filter floss, carbon, etc?

    It is not useless if you plan to keep only softies such as mushrooms, zoas, leather etc. Sps demand more pristine water which a mechanical filter alone can't provide.

    I have never used carbon in filters - it removes too many trace elements.
