That is an interesting thought on breaking a skimmer in. You'll have to let us know if it works! I never thought about doing it like that, but do let it run like that when I dump the cup. Wouldn't the inside of the cup need broken in too, as the breaking in period is also part of working the insides of the skimmer in after production, or am I over thinking it?

My skimmer was pulling stuff out right after the cycle without any fish in it too lol. Guess there are more organics in the water than we think.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well a little bummed.... The wife went and got me my 2 clowns today and was so nice to get them all set up and drip them for about 1 1/2 hrs.... Witch was nice considering she hates the whole fish tank thing.... But I come home to find one has jumped and died.... Little bummed out by it.... Cuz she worked so hard to get them and put them in the tank.....
