If you use Live Rock as your primary source of filtration, you should be fine in taking the bulk of the filter wool out of the back and replacing it with crushed LR (make this yourself, equipment required, hammer)
Too much filter wool becomes an area that speeds up the nitrate cycle and leaves nitrite with nowhere to go.
This crushed LR will eventually house copepods and amphipods, that will sort out detritis that will settle.
You can still use a small amount of wool on top but you will need to remove this and clean it weekly.
It's not that blue.It was late and that was atinics only and I didn't tale the time to set the camera properly. I am very pleased with the lighting color.I will get a better picture as the tank gets closer to being cycled

This site is a great place to start out and all questions are welcomed! But if you could please just start a thread of your own we will be able to help out better without having to run two conversations on the one thread. :cool1: A good question to answer is "What do I want IN my tank?". With that we can help much better.
These are cheaper versions of the original koralia but at this price, i'm not complaining.
The downside is that the steel shafts break from corosion and wear after about 18 months. replacements are available and are only a couple of bucks.
NOTE, the link is to an australian site, you will need to find them in the US
