-Lots of bio media, 5g chemi blue carbon pouches, debris pad
InTank Surface Skimmer
ATO: Aqua Smart ATO

Quick review of the inTank surface skimmer. For those that aren't familiar, it raises the display water level so that water is forced to trickle down the rear chambers. Took some adjusting to get it right but I've noticed an immense amount of debris and uneaten food in the rear chambers like never before and a fishy smell. My floss pads were completely dirty within a week and a half. I'd say it's doing its job great!

It looks like the filefish has removed a few aiptasia or at least put a hurting on them. There still remains the really large one that's over an inch in diameter. I should add the filefish is not here to stay. I was hoping no more than a few days but looks like maybe a week before it's through eating aiptasia. It's already killed a couple snails and giving me bad vibes the way it looks at my Duncan coral...
