    trying to setup my hob and I’m wondering to fill the skimmer up to get it going should I use tank water or fresh rodi water? I don’t want to use so much tank water that it’s gonna lower my levels

    Tank water. Make some more saltwater up first

    Agreed. Has anyone with this skimmer used the return chamber for a mini refugium? I'm going to add macro algea and may be small rock. Wondering if there are any problems with doing this.

    Thanks
