Ive had the tank setup for about 4 weeks now. I used cured LR
from the lfs
. 2 clowns were put in the tank 2 weeks ago. I have tested the water regularly since setting up the tank.
I put a protein skimmer in the sump 5 days ago. It is now starting to skim a little.
I tested the water today and my levels were a little elevated Nitrite( a little under .25), Ammonia levels (.25) and nitrate (5.0). Also my PH
was low at about 8.0. I was contemplating a WC
of 20%. Could the Protein skimmer have anything to do with this.
Any advice would be appreciated
