    When to add skimmer?

    So I have held of buying a skimmer because I thought i'd delay the cost a bit, and add it when needed. But it's been a year now since I've started, and I'm wondering, if the point of a protein skimmer is to eliminate organic waste, and none of my parameters are exceeding the recommended...

    Question about breaking in skimmer

    Hi all, I'm just setting up a new tank, and had a question about using skimmers. I understand they should be run for a week or so to 'break in', is that right? Currently my sump water is deeper than is recommended to operate the skimmer (for either a dry or wet skim). I've ordered a stand...

    How do I properly adjust a skimmer?

    How do I properly adjust a skimmer? My AquaTop Recife 40’s skimmer had no instructions, so I’m really not sure what the recommended height is. Once I have the height set, should I be raising and lowering it to keep getting skim mate? Basically, when I do a water change, that day my skimmer is...

    Clean your pumps!!

    Thought someone might find this interesting, doing a regular deep clean of my skimmer and had the pump apart after letting it run in a hot water acid bath. when i pulled out the impeller i was greeted with a impeller full of pet hair. Maybe someone will go clean there pumps now.
