Hello all: I have a Red Sea prizm Skimmer running, I know some people love 'em and others hate 'em. For better or worse, it works for me.
My question is this, is it safe for the aquarium inhabitants if I run this thing through the dishwasher with some dishwasher detergent running?
There is gunk at the bottom of the skimmer that I have troble getting out when I clean it in the sink, and I want to get it b/c I am not quite able to get my NO3
below 5, and I wanted to see if this might be a contributor of NO3
by washing it every couple of days in the dishwasher and keeping it cleaner. Sometimes when I adjust the flow a little too high, some solids come out in the outflow and I have a sneaking suspicion I may find one of my final culprits behind NO3
Thanks in advance.
