ok i understand about the rock.
i like amount of movement in the water with one HOB
filter on each back side of the tank, so thats good. the HOB
filters have a lot of surface movement on the top of the water so does that help with not needing a protein skimmer?
i am reading about protein skimmers, and it seems some people just do PWC
to take care of the surface build up.
would keeping the skimmer be good if i cant get around to a PWCs? i am full time student so some weeks i have more time than others.
i am also turning it off now to help the cycle ( from what i was reading)
