I agree, now that i have a little bit more experience, that small of a fuge really wouldnt do much good. It really needs the light. The macro would grow all crazy in the skilter also causing the skimmer part to not work properly. Thats my guess though because i didnt put any macro in it. Smart thinking though. Maybe you could invent a filter/fuge with an external closed loop PH!
You could make some good money! Good luck!
Hehe, inventing filters... i don't know about that lol. I think i'll just put enuf rubbles into the skilter that they won't be push around by the current. I won't help much but it does help :P. I won't add any LS
or macro. About the skilter, yes it sucks. I was looking at purchasing a new skimmer but most of them are well over $100 each and i know that my dad won't buy it since we already have a "skimmer" at home
Im gonna try the airstone mod for the skilter this weekend tho. Wish me luck
