    Hi,

    I’m switching over from tropical to marine, I have the aqua one aquanano 60 (100l)

    It has a rear sump on the tank with 6 chambers, I want to know what to change/replace from tropical set up to marine.

    Currently Tropical it has inlet, 2x sponge filters, ceramic rings, ceramic cartridge, carbon cartridge, heater and return pump (moray 480) (720l per hour)

    Lighting recommendations aswel please...

    Looking at keeping live rock, few small fish, soft corals and CUC

    Thanks

    any lighting will do unless you wish to keep light loving corals
    might want to replace the carbon
    a hang on back skimmer would also help

    What should I replace the carbon with? Also I’ve been told to get rid of the sponges and use floss instead?

    So the current led light that comes with the tank will do?

    Just fresh carbon if it’s been used
    Sponges and floss do the same thing really
    Just need to clean it as often as you can

    Yeah any lights will do for viewing fish

    Will I need a skimmer?

    Weekly water changes?
