Question for the board...
I have a 40 gallon corner acrylic tank, w/build in sump. I have a seaclone 100 skimmer, that won't fit in the sump (sump is too narrow) so I have to hang it on the back.
To make a long story short, to get it to hang on the back is going to be a royal pain. I'll need to move my tank another 3-4 inches out from the wall, as well as possibly due us cutting into my canopy.
It is a FOWLR
tank, I am in the middle of cycling right now, but when going will have probably 5 very small fish and a few inverts as well as live rock. My question is, how necesary is the protein skimmer? I know it will be of some help, but if I can get by without it at this point it would save me a hell of a lot of trouble. Wanted to get some opinions either way.
Thanks in advance.
