I have had my set up for about 3 weeks now and alls going well, I have stable salt content and temp, filter and powerhead running and a good clean up crew, Ihave lost one of my 2 Turbo snails but everything else is well. I've been feeding my hermits once a week with crab cuisine and dried seaweed for the snails too. The crabs seem happy and have started to swap shells (I assume this is a good thing?!)
My question is about my Skimmer, I bought a BOYU WG201 this week and have just put it into the tank, However I really don't know how its meant to work? Its running and there is a tornado type swirl in the middle, but I was wondering where the scum collects? does anyone know?? also is the white pipe at the top meant to be in the water or above?? I assumed above to provide air inflow?
I have just removed all my filter, powerhead and thermometer and cleaned in fresh RO water and the tank now looks terrible!!! Loads of bits floating around. Is this normal?
I have a 60L tank.
Any help greatly appreciated!!!
