A heater, and you need more flow too. A Koralia 240 will full fill that.

If you cycle your tank with raw shrimp, you don't need the skimmer and the carbon in your filter. You have to have as much ammonia to feed bb for your live rocks to shorten the process.

I don't know if skimmer reduce ammonia while the shrimp is decaying, but the skimmer aerate the water a lot and will make the BBs to spawn faster.

But for sure I won't use carbon while cycling, unusefull.

Ammonia comes from decaying nutrients. When you remove nutrients what do you think happens?
