How much live rock do you have? What type of filter did you get?
I see in your My tank that you only say that you have a few live rocks.

I use photobucket and copy and paste.
You need more LR. If you have 1-1 1/2# per gal. you don't need any other filtering except a skimmer.

A skimmer won't be needed as pwc will accomplish the same thing on tanks under 30 gallons.
