thanks for reading...still very confused newbie.. currently Cycling a 29 gallon fowlr
. I have 30 lbs of LR
and dryrock in tank with sand. I have two small powerheads. I am using my aquaclear 70 filter but was advised to purchase a skimmer. so i am looking online now for a HOB
skimmer for my small tank. If i go with a skimmer does that mean i can get rid of the AC
filter or is that also still needed? and if i do keep the AC
filter what media do i use in it? Do i still use the foam? I understand that some say it could be a nitrate factory. I dont mind junking it if its easier.. Or do i just use my AC70 alone with no skimmer?
I am also looking for a skimmer... LFS
trying to sell me the red sea prizm deluxe... another LFS
says thats junk and to get a Eshopps psk75 instead... I look online and there are 60000 choices.. I dont want to spend a bunch on one but also dont want to skimp out and regret it...are these both good choices? i want a hob
because im not gonna do a sump setup for now... Maybe in the future if i upgrade to a bigger tank...thanks again for helping..
