    Hi there
    NP pellets, purigen and prime, good filtration, dont feed to mutch, proper DSB.
    Theres a few you can go have a look at. Not all of it works for everyone.

    You can also have some culipra or cheato in your sump.

    Good luck and welcome to the best hobby ever bud

    Hi Duncan,

    Welcome to the hobby and the forum. There is a wealth of information here so the search tool is probably a good place to start ;)

    If you provide more info about your setup and ask direct to the point questions Im sure you will get many helpful replies.

    Cheers

    Hi Duncan, welcome to MASA

    DSB is a deep sand bed, used as filtration, wold generally be your sump
    NP pellets (Nitrate Phosphate) is another form filtration, placed in a reactor
    Caulerpa and Caeto are forms of macro algae, can be placed in sump or sometimes directly into display tank.
    Will try and find links to pics and better explanations for you.

    By asking questions, you are already on the right track, and remember, the google search function at the top of the page can often give you a quicker answer than waiting for a response in the thread ... ;)
