Native marine aquaria are pretty scarce. Little information exists on how to be successful in maintaining healthy coldwater marine systems in domestic aquaria.

Hopefully this record of my failures, triumphs and ideas will assist others interested in keeping some of our fascinating, beautiful and often little known sea denizens in aquariums.

To be honest I dont really use the canister filter as any kind of biological filter. I have a couple of bags of charcoal in there and the rest of the filter is full of foam pads for the removal of suspended particulates. If I had a drilled tank with a sump I wouldnt need a canister filter at all. I dont want the nitrate cycle to be speeded up in a biological filter...more on that later.
