    Vertex skimmer

    Ok so I had taken the vertex skimmer out of my sump and ran an old euro reef skimmer for a few while but after reading all this again I figured I would give it a shot again. I have finally got it running stable and pulling a good amount of skimate. Thanks to everyone for the help and advice

    Help with nitrates

    Tank wasn't stocked quick I don't think. I only have 3 fish. 2 snowflake clowns and a blue green chromis. The rock is Marco rock from premium aquatics I was considering carbon dosing but if there is a better way.... Lol

    Help with nitrates

    Ok so my reef is only about 4 months old. It is a 40 breeder with a sump with a water volume of 10 gallons. I have close to 40 pounds of rock in the system that went in dry.my filtration consists of a filter sock which I change twice a week. A euroreef rs80 skimmer and foam pads in the sump before the return section to stop the micro bubbles. I also run a gfo reactor on this system. I also do 25% water changes every two weeks and haven't missed one. The nitrates are climbing slowly even with all of this. I don't know what to do. They are reading 20ppm currently any help would be appreciated. Also fish are fed every other day

    Water change or no

    The nitrates have remained 20 for over a week. I have had a diatom bloom and that is actually almost cleared up on its own too

    Vertex skimmer

    Still having issues with this darn skimmer. Is it possible to have one to large? It worked fine for a week then went totally flat for 2 days

    How many fish?

    Well i know i want a couple nice clowns for sure. And some sort of goby if i can have without sand. Other than that my daughter wants something pink. I would also like cleaner shrimp. I just want plenty of color and movement in the tank. I guessbi should add the rock was dry when it went in.
