    hi guys

    Thanks for the welcome
    can someone please tell me what the correct chemical levels for a fowlr tank is
    Also i have told that it is not ideal to have an internal filter - i have a sump with a skimmer at the moment - will this be enough to keep the tank clear

    In a FOWLR one just has to do decent water changes weekly. Trace element and calcium levels aren't that important and regular water changes of about 10 percent weekly with a good quality salt should keep things in check. Tell us more about your system and perhaps post a pic or two so we can see what you're doing and welcome to MASA

    Just monitor your Nitrate, PH, Sal, Iodine and temp a little calcium will help the fish bones, you could also use Carbon to keep the water clear and not to smelly.
