Just one thing I will mention. You said you are doing water changes, are you also changing out the floss and other media when you do the changes?

A protien skimmer is always recommended. With enough LR and a good skimmer, your filtering needs will be met. IMO, a skimmer is an important part of keeping water quality high.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
