    Water conditioners and protein skimmers... Can I not use a RO/DI system?

    I've heard API Stress Coat and Seachem Prime aren't really compatible with protein skimmers. What would another option be other than getting a reverse osmosis filter? Are there any other chemicals that remove chlorine and other bad chemicals that won't mess with a protein skimmer?

    Is my Aquamaxx DFC-80 protein skimmer defective?

    Was recently assembling my skimmer and couldn't even get past step 6 because the cap that screws on to the the pump doesn't make the clearance for the diffuser to screw together or even be shut all the way.
