Does anyone know anything about this brand of filter and if it would be sufficient for a 110 gallon FOWLR tank? Pentair Aquatics

Skip the filter and get a protein skimmer.

A fluidized bed would be a good choice for a FO but you will have live rock as well, enough live rock and you won't need the bed filter. I agree with getting a good skimmer.

I am currently on a fairly limited budget, and I'm not rushing into getting the tank started, I'm just weighing my options. So what is a good skimmer that is affordable. and will I need a sump?

jus lookin over some post..came across this one....I would for a 110G tank. Skip and of those crappy HOB's and Get a Sump. U will enjoy more stable water conditions and u can put a nice quality skimmer down there. IMO If u are on a short budget wait and hold off for awhile. Skipping out on valuable equipment can cost u more in the long run with a lot of fustration as well. Trust Me. When your budget gets bigger start it up.
