Have some ideas on filtration--what do you think?


New member
Hi guys,

I've been trying to decide for some time now on my filtration system for my 150-gallon. I do have a protein skimmer, and I decided to save my beans and get a refugium/sump combo made by Lifereef--I looked at their website and I'm impressed. Recently I've been looking into plenum systems and have heard many good things about them. What do you guys think--can I use a plenum with a protein skimmer/refugium? I like the idea that you don't have to use so much live rock with a plenum, but I'm new to this, so don't quote me on it! LOL! I plan on keeping a reef with some reef-safe fish, soft corals and a clam or two, and maybe some stonies down the road when I get more experience. Would this filtration idea work? All you guys here on Reef Central have been a great help to me!
