I added the ROWAphos and liverock rubble in a hob filter. The corals are looking good. I have a feeling my Xenia is going to grow very fast! It loves the high flow.

if you have a BB tank do you still need a protein skimmer?
will a BB tank help with the phosphates?

yes in my opinion. But you don't "need" one. Going bare bottom prevents phosphates and other stuff from being trapped.

You most likely wont get a spike if you moved all of the live rock over most of the BB will be in them. That xenia will haunt you lol i'm still trying to get it out of my tank.

Bluzepher if you go with a bare bottom and a small bio load you can get away from a skimmer A bare bottom tank is a lot easier to keep clean and free of any detritus

Hey Grizz. Do you know of any aggressive fish I can put with my maroon clown? I'm probably going to get a pink dottyback. Going to buy egg crate to cover the tank also. The 2 clowns in the tank now will be removed and replaced with the maroon, dottyback and maybe 2 other fish.
