protein skimming

everyone who owns a saltwater reef should have one. in my 30 gal i had a red slime alga problem big time, tryed red slime remover, no work only lowers the p.h and oxygen levels to like 7.6 and oxygen to 1 to nothing. i turned up my protein skimmer to the max and in 2days you could see it turning brown and dieing, within 1 week it was all gone, with no chems at all. i swear by the protein skimmer.( never add chems to a reef tank!) walt 8)

Which skimmer did you use? Saying A skimmer is quite general, this could mean anything from a $20.00 skimmer to a thousand dollar skimmer

your skimmer removes all impuritys and meds if you dare. also iron,strontium/moly and other trace elements. kent marine makes Essential Elements which i use to replace what my skimmer takes out. 8)
