Just a thought though i wanted to know if my skimmer could be the result of the constant battle that i have w/ excess nutirients/phosphates thus resulting in a littered sea bed.
i do partial water changes, approx 5-10% every 5 days, try to siphon as much debris on the the bed as possible and i cant seem to reduce enough nutrients enough to have a clean white sand bed, minimal algae and basically i nice looking tank.
I mean i guess it's not that bad looking though i would much rather seeing a clean sand bed than a one covered in what looks to be a silky cyano
, algae and poop.
I have a lawnmower blenny and i think he is really doing a number i see his poop everywhere
I've reduced lighting and feeding. Feeding approx 1 every 36hrs and keeping the lighting to approx 5-7hrs a day.
Nitrate 0, amonia 0, nitrate 0 ph 8.2.
over the past month i've used a phosphate remover in the media basket of my red sea prism skimmer.
I've been getting mixed reviews about the skimmer some good some bad though its hard to tell personally as this is my first tank.
I noticed that the collection cup is relatively green and it does seem to pull a decent size of gunk every 4-7days though alot of the gunk is mixed in w/ acutal water.
If anybody has any recomendations for a decent skimmer (if this is the issue), w/ a relatively low clearance and reasonable price, feel free to mention.
Thanks in advance.
