My tank has been running flawless since I started it up a little of three weeks ago. My water is perfect. I've added 40 blue legs and 30 turbo snails about a week ago and everyone seems to still be there. I haven't added any fish yet, going to wait a couple more weeks.
My main question is: is it time to buy a protein skimmer? I have 80lbs of liverock and I'm dosing Kalk
. What I've noticed is that sometimes the water in my fuge gets a little "slimmy" looking. I don't know why. Possibly, the water current. Maybe as the water level gets higher, the water movement slows down and the "slimmyness" begins. I don't know. Or, do I need a protein skimmer?
If so, what do you think of the Berlin?
