I have lots of good experience keeping freshwater planted tanks (I have 7 ranging from 20-120 gallons). I am gathering up to start my first small nano reef tank (a 20 gallon hex with custom glass lid and Aquaillumination Prime clip on light fixture). I got a barely used Aquamaxx HOB
1 Protein Skimmer for the tank (in like new condition). From what I understand this skimmer acts at the filter all in one. Seeing I am new to reef and salt, what about running any chemical media if ever needed in the tank (such as Chemi-pure etc)? I don't think this skimmer allows for chemical media, but perhaps I won't need it? Or should I ever need it add a small aquaclear filter also?
Sorry for my ignorance on the salt side! Would really love feedback on how all this works.
