I have a question for you straight away :-):
Do you beleive that a wet/dry trickle filter system is as effective on a FW set up as it is on a SW set up. I am not talking about the Eheim wet/dry but a purpose built sytem with the trickle bar over the top.

hi mick, yes i do think that a we & dry system is far better, the reason for this is for better oxygen as the water passes over the media plus as an added extra you will start to see things growing in the sump which is a good indication that things are doing well and the water is good and you can keep a lot of the things out of the main tank and put it in to the sump i.e heaters and with a big enough return pump you can get a good water flow in the main tank.

Hey fizzy... In the coming months, I plan on upgrading my 55 to a 120 and i'm not sure what I am going to do about filtration yet. I was going to do a sump with a skimmer of course and allow the live rock to do the majority of the filtration.

Filtration wise...

If money was NOT an object, what would you do?

Hi NEC, well if you did have the money then YES i would use live rock in the sump, that is what i have done but if you are a bit short in money then you could use the small plastic bio balls which can do the same job as live rock but the process of getting the bacteria started is slower than live rock.
