Last week I switched from a hob
filter to the remora protien skimmer, it seems that the current in my 46 gallon tank is not very strong anymore- I have 1 maxijet 1200 along with the one that attaches to the skimmer. Yesterday when I got home from work, my star polyp that I've had for about 6 weeks and it had been looking great was all closed up. I had a friend drop by to look at it a few minutes ago and got the same story- is this because there is not enough flow or could there be other reasons.
I checked water quality yesterday- amonia, nitrates and nitrites are all good but, i'm still fighting high ph- aprox 8.8.
Any adivce? Should i get another powerhead?
