I am considering converting this Malawi tank to saltwater. My concern is the Eclipse 3 system on this tank. Can it support a fish/live rock only set-up?

I started with an eclipse system 3 on a 32g tank. would do a good FO and maybe a FOWLR. I modified mine so I could stick on a HOB skimmer and added another 20watt floro bulb(would probably be best to add a 75watt VHO floro or a 55watt compact floro).

cheers

no problem, however if you go fish only with live rock I would definatly add a couple powerheads. I just love some good flow. mind you atm the old eclipse system(well whats left of it after various modfications) is running a 32g freshwater. the cut out area that the HOB skimmer used to use now has an aquaclear 200 and the normal filter area houses bioballs. the area where the biowheel used to sit is completely gone!
