I'm not kidding my skimming does not stink at all ... And I wonder if it's because there's not enough biological load in the aquarium or there's just something wrong here

skimmate consists of a lot more then fish poo...

  • 38% organic carbon
  • 26% calcium carbonate
  • 21% silicon dioxide
  • 8% inorganic ions (trace nutrients?)
  • 7% magnesium carbonate

Thats just from Dr google


I don't see anything to worry about. My skimmate smells kinda earthy
