So im new to this site and just recently started up a pretty good size reef tank. Im starting this build to help get information and help along the way to make sure i dont mess things up, since im new to reef tanks. Its a 6' L x 18" w x 24" d tank and i believe a 50 gallon sump...
So my protein skimmer doesn't seem like it's producing alot of waste to me, shouldnt I have to empty it at least once a week? It's a 65g reef with 50lbs of LR and 6 fish right now, 3 chromis, 1 clown, 1 sixline
2 corals, 1 torch 1 Xenia

Maybe I'm missing something here. But when we do top offs, we put the water in our sump. How is it possible that the display tank fills up more? I would like to keep the display tank level and get a little more water volume in the sump. I'm confused why it immediately goes to the top?
