View Full Version : When to start skimming

10/19/2009, 08:06 PM

I recently started my tank over, I have a Aquac Remora in a 28G nano, I added 23 LBS of cured rock and 20 LBS of live sand this pass Saturday. My tank seems to have some foam particle build up on the surface that is sticking the sides/glass. I was wondering when i should start the skimmer up and would this help with the foam/cloudiness of the tank?

Most run their skimmer from day one. Do you have a surface skimmer attachment for the remora, if so this will get rid of the film on the surface.

I do not have the surface skimmer, it will not work with the pump being in the rear chamber of the nano cube. I just figured that the skimmer is going to skim super wet and there is no bio load in the tank at all.
