Generally, most everyone I've heard of runs their skimmer constantly. A skimmer is designed to take out proteins before they can be broken down and pollute your water, and that's happenining pretty much 24/7. I have heard of some people turning off/lowering their water level to the cup while feeding to keep food from being skimmed out, but really, if you're feeding so much it's getting past the DT into the sump to that degree before it's eaten, you're probably feeding too heavily.
Ok, sounds good. I'll leave it running. I was just worried if there was a thing as being too powerful for a specific tank size. I know you can have bigger rated skimmers but unsure about the 29 to 105 gallon leap in difference. Thanks guys!
As long as you keep the water clean and them fed they sound easy to propagate. I just have a 5 gallon right now for the brine. Putting them in a 30 next week because I'll need a lot more feeding the way I do. I think it's worth it. Especially if you get finicky fish like wrasses or dragonets/some blennies they'll be a lot more likely to thrive or at least survive. I don't know, I'm sold and excited. There's a paper of pocillipora growth being fed brine eggs that smashed the other groups in growth rate by 10X. I don't net the brine. I scoop water and replace with fresh so the tanks getting all stages of growth hopefully the corals are eating too. They have a feeding response so I'm guessing they do. We should start a live food thread to follow my experience. Maybe your friend could chime in and you could start. You two could share cultures.
