Looking at pics of everyones skimmers in action make me extremely sad, my skimmer waste is usually a soft brown liquid, everyone elses seems to be a dark green gunk....does mine just suck that bad?? Hate to have to replace it

So I don't know out of the items above which comes first, once I can figure that out then I can decide the route I want to take.

Then I gotta figure out how to take care of them and feed them before I buy them. And I gotta get their food supplies and such beforehand too.... which leads to figuring out what to feed what LOL.

Don't want to buy a fish or anything and not be able to feed it. That would be bad....very very bad.
I've never ran a skimmer .. I will eventually buy one but its nothing u need right away...

HaHa I'm off today jsmith.

Thanks for the pic of your skimmer Ibrahim.

I know for skimmer, it's gotta be in sump kind. I don't have sump yet but will. So it's have to be HOB and in sump combo.

I'll check out the Octopus's.

I got 36 hours 48 hours off. Hope I don't waste it surfing. I got alot to get done.

If you adjust the skimmer the skimmate can be either watery or more "solid". I have a nasty black goo that comes out of my skimmer.

And dont blame buffy for not getting much done, she's been researching like crazy trying to help me and my fish diagnosis. Which I really really appreciate.

Here are my 3 favorite hang on skimmers

Hang on Back HOB Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers
AquaC Remora & Remora Pro Protein Skimmers
CPR Bak Pak 2 Hang on Back Protein Skimmers for Marine & Reef Aquarium

You want one that can "handle" about twice your tank size but with hangons its kinda hard to get to there. Any of the above I think would be a great addition.

She's not running a sump. Decided to go with a canister because of space constraints. :-(

Yeah, I think getting a new stand or having a stand adjacent would be a nightmare for her. She's at 75g so she should be fine, she went with a fluval 405.

And we'll see which skimmer she picks out. I did the canister filter/hob skimmer with my 55g and had 0 issues with it.
