I don't have a protein skimmer on either my tanks, but they help nitrates rise slower. The only way to actually remove the nitrates are with algae, water changes, or a deep sand bed.

And the trates will slow down eventually. Not gonna lie, its aggravating for the first few weeks(if you already have live rock) but then it slows

This small tank is taking just as long to get fully operational as my 75. It's like I've got two partial completed death stars. I hope it's a good read on your catch up.

+1 for the death star reference. But you do have to keep in mind that ammo/trites/trates are measured in concentration levels... so tank size only factors into how quick they rise. Other than that its identical. Hope that statement makes sense lol

Completely. I am kinda playing with the idea of a sump to increase volume and maybe increase flirtation potential
