ugh i get threads confused ALL the time. thought this was a 125. still though R.O. are good skimmers. i still think it should handle the job nicely. may need to possibly look into a bigger skimmer when the fish are full-grown, but thats years down the road.

Thanks a million! Yes my porcupine is only about 4 & 3/4 big and my GSP is only 2 1/2 really appreciate that you took the time to give me your 2 cents

Yes, I believe they will be fine once the spike is over. I wouldn't add anything to the tank while you have ammonia or nitrite present.

Oh yea, planned on waiting until everything is zero & trates are down to 40, thank you so much! I was worrying about them bigtime! I've had a rock nem for 2 1/2 years now that is my absolute favorite anemone, I'd be really upset if something happened to it!

I would want my nitrates much lower than that for anemones. That would be considered high for a reef tank.

Ok! Mine are at 20 now in the current set up, I just thought if they were on they're way down it would be ok, but I will wait
