I don't know if he's in the business, but thats besides the point. Read over his post again. Our actions have a direct impact on the enviroment as well as out ability to self regulate our hobby.
All of us in the hobby have to conduct ourselves in a responsible manner .

I cleaned up the ending here to keep it from rambling out of control. Sorry for those posts that got deleted. As stated, I see no problem with debating this in its own thread...start one. I am PM'ing your last comments as starting point to you if you wish to continue it further...Hoops

alright, so back to me.

I have been running my BakPak2R skimmer in my tank with just the sand in the bottom for 3 months now and I have gotten no gunky buildup. Is that cause I dont have any rocks yet? or is it a broken skimmer.
Hardware: 37 gallon SW tank and stand by Oceanic Systems, Magnum 350 Pro Canister Filter (half carbon), CPR Bak Pak 2R skimmer, Maxijet 1200 Powerhead, RenaCal 150 W heater, Compact fluorescent lights with moonlights. 40 lbs of liverock, 3" sand bed.

Software:2 Tank-Raised Ocellaris Clowns, 1 Purple Firefish, 1 Electric Orange hermit crab, 18 Blue Legged hermit crabs, 8 or so Nassarius snails, Xenia, Blue, green, and Green Striped Mushrooms.

Most likely because there really is no bioload. If you cycle with the liverock, I would remove the skimmer....others keep it in.
