    Hi all

    I have decided to go fish only with the 130. No softies. I will be setting up a small complete reef in the coming months, hence this tank will be FO.
    In having FO would a low salinity affect the Liverock in the system - would the live rock still stay alive or would it become dead(denitrification properties not goggas)?
    What salinity should i aim for to ensure that i can keep the Whitespot at bay?
    I will be overstocked - would it be a good idea to add a fluidised bed filter filter with ceramic rings or another type of media to assist with the nitrite to nitrate i currently have about 50 - 60Kg liverock in the system?(what would you suggest)
