I'm pretty well a newbie at Salt. My son & I did this for his birthday.
My question is about a Magnum 350 Power filter. I bought an entire setup from a friend ($100) that included 2 - 55 gal
, 2 - Whisper 60's and 1 - Magnum 350 Power filter.
1. Is the Magnum 350 considered a protein skimmer?
2. Do I have to have the Magnum above the water level on tank in order for it to work? I hooked it up once and although the pump was running and primed, I couldn't get it to pump any water to and from the tank. I had it sitting on the floor and my tank is on the lower level of a 2 level stand. (I'm running a fresh on the upper level, something I know a little more about)
Anyway, I'm running as follows:
10 lbs live rock
1 Yellow Tang
2 Clowns (Nemo Type)
1 Black & Gold Chromis
1 Scooter Blennie
1 - ?? Either a BiColor Pseudochromis or Royal Gramma Basslet
(It was supposed to be a Basslet, but it's way too aggressive for that, still cursing my lfs
I'm running an undergravel filter and a Whisper 60 and have 2 powerheads in the tank.
