my water is crystal clear right now. i am so happy that i got the skimmer. there are a lot of fine little bubbles in my tank though, but they don't seem to be bothering any of the fish or anything. pierre, my coral banded shrimp, likes to hang out by the pump for the skimmer now. i put a few pieces of LR
in front of it to help kind of hide it, and pierre found himself a little home back there. anyways, just wanted to let everybody know how happy the skimmer has made me.
