Is there a particular age for an aquarium when a protien skimmer becomes necessary? I have read opinions on this both ways so wanted some of your input.
2nd question are there stand alone protein skimmers, meaning I could place it under the aquarium without a sump or is my only option a HOB
I have setup a 130 gallon fowlr
(50lbs so far) it has been running for almost 4 months now. I have 1/2 a dozen scarlet hermits, 2 blue knuckle hermits, 2 percula clowns, 2 yellow tail damsels, and a royal gramma, along with 4 trochus snails and 4 Turbos. I have my eye on a blue ringed angel that is at my LFS
, he has been there for 3 weeks and if still there this weekend I am going to purchase and place in quarantine.
