I read that protein skimmer will skim important trace minerals out of the water. I will only have a FOWLR
right now, but a reef in the future. Do I need to monitor and add trace minerals to the water now, or should I wait until it's a reef? I'd think the fish would need the minerals too, but I'm not sure, so I'm asking.
Also, I have some StressCoat from a former tank (a freshwater that was taken down a month ago) and it says it is intended for use in fresh- and saltwater. It has aloe to help repair fin damage and it's a dechlorinator. Would it be alright to use? Also, StressZyme by the same company, is concentrated bacteria that are supposed to help in the biological filtration. Also says it is intended for both fresh- and saltwater use. Think it really is safe, and if it will do anything at all? TIA
for the info!
