I'm looking for advice for 3 questions:
I finally added a protein skimmer to my FOWLR
(i was told my many people that a FO
doesn't need a skimmer....tell that to all my fish that died). Anyway, I'm curious how often you guys clean out your crap that builds up in there. I just want to make sure mine is working OK.
Now that I have this skimmer, should I keep my HOB
filter with 2 bio-wheels? I've heard yes and no. It doesn't create a whole lot of water movement. I'm thinking of dumping it and maybe putting a smaller HOB
filter (without bio wheels) back on. My fish seemed to do better before the bio wheels. Any thoughts???
I've added a power head near the bottom of my tank. Do you guys normally run your powerheads with air (creates A LOT of bubbles), or just use it to move the water around? I've heard it's good to use air to add some Oxygen to the water, but it seems like there are too many bubbles.
Anyway....I appreciate any answers or suggestions as to how your tanks are set up. Thanks!
