    Hi Guys

    So im upgrading from a 600L to a 1000L.All live stock and live rock will also be transfered.Just two questions please.

    1)How much new saltwater will you guys use and how much of the old sytem will you add?
    2)This time im going to include a refugium. My question is should i run macro algae such as Chaeto from the beginning or only after the cycle?

    Thank you and have a good weekend everyone

    You can run the macro from the word go, the affect if any of macro algae is so small anyway...just makes a cool place for pods and critters to multiply.
