Found some cheap filter pad at grainger. and to think i was paying 4$ for a 2x2 piece of pad. grainger has 1" thick filter pad 16" wide and 90feet long for 35$.
this ought to keep me going for a couple years. just need to check and see if it has any fire retardent added. grainger has a lot of equipment that could be used in the fish hobby. timers, float switches, tubing, fittings.............

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

which in turn creates amonia? yes,no
Yes and no, it is a cycle. Kinda like the food chain. The waste, what the critters body doesn't use, will be excreted but will be less than it was before. The energy will be used by the critter, not become ammonia, the waste will become ammonia or food for another critter down the cycle.

but will a skimmer remove large particles?
Skimmers will remove particulate matter...too a point, it would depend on how large.
