Hi everyone, I am a newbie saltwater guy and I am just about done cycling my 55g tank. I want to have softies, LPS
and fish eventually, but at the moment, I have a nice LR
aquascape and nothing else.
My questions are... I just got a protein skimmer (Hang on Back Reef Octopus BH1000 - since I don't have a sump) and I am not sure if I want to install it now towards the end of the cycle, or wait a few more weeks? I just got my diatom bloob a few days ago. Also, I am assuming that I want to fill it up with saltwater prior to installing since I'm adding volume to the tank?
Any help you can provide would be extremely appreciated!!
