What are the benefits of a salt water wet/dry filter?


Answer by  digmyspace (249)

Although filters for salt water are more elaborate and expensive you'll find that the wet/dry type of filters are the most simplified for salt water filtration. They are really efficient and hence very cost effective.

I spent about 300$ for my wet/dry filter. It seemed a lot, but maintaining it is sooooo easy and the initial investment for my salt water aquarium is worth every penny!  add a comment

Tweety - which style did you set up. The External Power type, the Canister style or the Sump Style?  add a comment

I find the fact that you can set one up yourself is the biggest plus point. It's fun and when you DIY - it adds a lot of thrill in maintaining the aquarium.

If you DIY, I seriously say that you should do some calculations about the size of the filter you need and calculate the amount of water you need to filter. Too small a filter and everything will be messy!  add a comment
