He has 20 years on your 4 months. What's cute is that you think you can even question that kind of experience. Thanks for sharing, but again, let us know how it is going in a few years.

Many marine species can spend periods of time in freshwater. They may be fresh,or brackish, but it is probably not full marine like a reef tank. Either way it won't work anyways so it is pointless.

Im not sure if this was mentioned yet, but refugiums dont REMOVE anything from the system, the macro absorbs it. If the macro dies, it is released into the system. I would run a skimmer and refugium if I had the option.

Wow u mad? Yes I've lived in florida andtexas both have outlets or more technical deltas. Still jellys need a whole different setup.

I know what my question was. And I know my stuff I've actualy studied all around the gulf of mexico for my marine biology degree. Do you thhink I know how far you are from the ocean? No I do not. So before you go critizing someones question about the river you can actually explain a little bit more. Kthnxbai

Again, let us know if in a few years your water changes were enough to prevent any issues. Until then, I don't think your few months without a skimmer proves anything beyond a tank can go a few months without a skimmer.
For one you can run tanks with out skimmers. My work has a system of 2 120s with sps lps and softies two 6 bulb t5 fixtures and its only running a fuge and berlin system
