Tank is 29G.... live rock was set up when tank was set up approx 8 months ago.... only thing in there is a fire fish. have not added any live rock since tank was set up. water is changed weekly with 5 gallon water changes with RODI
salt water. tank currently has an aqua clear 50 HOB
and with foam filter pad and purigen. ....all of that info i have said before.... feed twice daily with new life spectrum pellets, approx 5 or so pellets per feeding. have two power heads, one on either side of the glass wall. when i test the water ammonia is high.... the only question is.. like i asked... does a wet to dry need a protein skimmer? not sure why the rest of this info is needed just to know whether or not a wet to dry is adequate with or without a protein skimmer.
