Looks great so far! The protein skimmer takes a while to go work!

i dont have a "filter" on my tank. no mechanical filter other than my sponge on the pump. you dont really need one. i would just add maybe some filter floss and replace it whenever you need to.

Wait, you're running the skimmer while cycling? You'll just lengthen the cycle that way brother. But that is an incredible looking tank! Keep us updated on whats going on in it.

You won't see skim till there's a bioload. I Agree with sniper, don't put it on when there's ammo in the tank.
