Thanks for posting it.
For the record: I am pro skimming. HOWEVER...
In my old reef tank that eventually crashed, i skimmed religiously 24/7. This was a 40 Gal
In my current 10 gal
nano, I am not skimming, just running an AC
20 with LR
Rubble and macro algae. Sometimes, when I am feeling fruity, I put a lil bag o' carbon in there for kicks.
I have far less nutrient issues in this nano than i did in my 40. My softies are doing better. My surviving fish are doing better.
I ran the nano FOWLR
for quite some time after I scavanged what i could from the 40 gal
Not sure what that all means, but one more thing: I have never had yellow water in the nano.
