I was wondering about your thoughts on a Nano skimmer. I saw it in my Foster and Smith catalog this morning. Here's the summary of my Nano adventures so far. I have a 12g Nano, for a few years now. For about a year, I struggled with fish. I went through 2 clownfish
, who lasted 4 months, and 6 months each. I think part of my problem was doing too drastic of water changes, throwing off the salinity and temp too much too fast for them. I haven't had fish in there for about 7 months, as I've been working on the stand for a 75g tank to set up sometime in the future.
I think it may be a while yet before the 75g is going to be set up, so I want to try to improve my Nano. I don't have a big algea problem, the only annoyance I have is some green bubble algea here and there. However, I have what appears to be undesired plant growths of some kind. They're spreading, and I can't really remove them, since the little pieces that get left behind seem to spread their growths. I'm thinking that there's an excess of some chemicals/substances that I just can't seem to get to go away, which seem to help these annoying growths. Here's a link to a previous post with one of the two types of growths:
Has anyone in here used a skimmer with a Nano? There's a 2 inch diameter, 6.5 inch height skimmer, powered by a 84 gph
air injection pump.
