Everything is a chemical. Water, the salt mix, the literal everything. LOL! I get you though. It was probably not helpful at all since the issue hasn't really resolved and made a mess of my skimmer.

Tank looks like crap. Going out of town for a week so the horrors that await I bet will be grand.
Your tank only has been going 3 1/2 months and you started with new rock...
Of course your tank is going to look like ...

Yeah I'm not worried about it. I was worried about the byropsis though. Those sidelights are in the mud room. They suck too, whoever added that on was a moron. Can't wait to move. Counting the days now.

Is the skimmer finally working after the water change through it?

No I only did one 5 gallon bucket, going to do another tonight, then another the next. It got better though. I have a trip I', leaving for on Saturday so I am trying to get the tank on auto pilot before I go. As it is draining in the bucket I add new fresh saltwater. It is a real stupid thing...LOL

Just to add to that you can raise the skimmer up also! It looks like you have a stand already if raise it up 2 inches or so and run it in 5” deep water it will perform better with less turbulence and head pressure on the pump! Most likely won’t over flow any more either.

I can't find the dang legs. So I used a tupperware. It didn't help. Chemiclean is garbage.

Awwww. I see. I figured it was battle corals. I can't grow anything but algae so I can't imagine the stress. My neglected pest tank is doing great now days though. LOL!

Just for your info. I still get bryopsis… When ever I clean a pump or a frag rack. Boom there it is. Never on anything else.
