As some of you know I have been running my 20 gal
tank skimmerless for about 4 months now and the 80 gal
tank has never had a skimmer on it since I set it up a few months back. Well last week I decided I would turn the skimmer on the 20 and see what I pulled out of the water.
To my supprise over the course of 1 week I managed to pull out a whole 1/2" worth of brown fluid out of the collection cup. Maybe 1/4th a liquid cup in all. I was rather suprised that I did not pull out more.
So today I moved the prizm skimmer down to the 80 and put it on the sump. I plan on running it down there for a week ro
so and see what I can pull out of the water down there.
Has anyone else noticed this kind of thing if they ran skimmer less for a period and then put a skimmer back on?
