You might not need the float valve, unless you have something to store the water in. But you are going to need good RO/DI water not just RO, it will help with any algae problems later down the road. Won't have them!!

I would use the float valve. Eventually you will forget about it and have some water on the floor

Do duncan heads sometimes split or do they just sprout new ones? A couple of heads on mine are becoming really oval shaped and kinda look like their going to split.

Man aiptasia is crazy. I just found a head of it about a foot away from either of the frags I got. Im assuming it came from the frags. I had good luck a few years ago with a couple peppermint shrimp knocking out a bad infestation. Hope it works again. I was hoping to get some pods, well that backfired...lol

Running biopellets and dosing nopox... they can cause your skimmer to go nutz. But I think its from most of my diatoms dying off
