So i went to the LFS
this afternoon with my dad. The owner of the LFS
is my dad's friend so he explained to me all these stuff about the skimmers. He doesn't have many brands of skimmers. He only has Prizm, Skilter and Corallife Needle. I asked if i should buy the Coralife one but he said it's too big for my tank and that i need a sump to use it? That doesn't sound right to me but i listened to him anyway. He's a good guy tho. He let me trade in my skilter for a Prizm skimmer. We did NOT have to pay for the skimmer yet. He said i could bring it back next week if i don't like it. So any opinion on my new skimmer? Should i return it next week and purchase something else? He said he might be able to order some other brands in if i want. My dad doesn't like ordering stuff on the internet...
O yea, i used to place my phosguard and AC
in my skilter but now that i have a prizm, it doesn't have enuf space for me to stuff those medias in. I currently just place it right in the tank. Any suggestion of where i should place it? I don't like looking at that bag of black stuff in my tank hehe.
Thank you guys with much much love
EDITED: I would like to add that this skimmer is subjected to be returned. The LFS
said just try it out and if i don't like it, i could return it anytime. I already dislike it b/c it releases micro bubbles into the tank. So my other option is getting a Coralife needle skimmer for 125G tanks. He doesn't have any smaller than that
. Do you think i can use that skimmer on my 30G without using a sump? If not, i'll probly ask him to order some other skimmer for me later on. Thanks guys
