    Well the tank is flowing nicely. 2 weeks now! In preparation I ordered a reef octopus bh2000 skimmer and a 1050ghp koralia power head. When should I start to run the skimmer? I'm trying to make sure the water stays as clean as possible with good flow for my future little fellas!

    Hey all, I just picked up a sca-301 protein skimmer. It is working great, however I am getting a lot of micro bubbles out of the flow control pipe and filling up my sump with air. Does this go away after it breaks in? How long does it take to break in? 65 gal 20 gal sump Rio 17 H w/korilia 550

    So the new tank is up and running. The cycle started yesterday, when do you put the protein skimmer in? Will it help the cycle speed up or will it slow the cycle down? Thanks guys.

    Has any one used these skimmers? Pros and Cons? I'm intrested in the 150 BMK or the 160 cone. Which would be better for the new 150 gallon tall I'm setting up on friday. Which by the way I'm so excited about I can hardly sleep. Thanks.
