Re: Help needed with protein skimmer please #11
It said to let it settle down for about 48 hours, not with the water level at full skimming height, therefore the amount of air is only going to increase. However, the guy from aqua-medic said that some salts have an agent to help skimming and that this may cause "over-bubbling" but he seemed to think it would settle down eventually. I'll keep you posted, thanks for the advice as I would have been completely tearing my hair out otherwise. I think I will ignore it for a few days and then see if it has improved. Did yours produce alot of bubbles at first, or did you put it on a mature tank?

maturing my tank? #12
I've had my marine tank set up for a week now and am considering putting in a large amount of live rock.At the moment I just have 6 kg's in there and some live sand.I was wondering as the ammonia and nitrite levels are 0, will putting this rock in help mature the tank or will all the good stuff in the live rock simply be killed if the ammonia and then nitrite rise later on, leaving me with "dead" live rock? If I wait before putting the rock in, how else can I get things going?

Re: Help needed with protein skimmer please #13
Thanks, it seems to be working ok but there are still some microbubbles getting through the bubblestop back into the aquarium, but I hope this will settle down soon.

Re: Help needed with protein skimmer please #14
I've swapped it with a tmc v2 skim 600. The internet shop that I bought it from were kind enough to take it back even though I explained the problem was with me not the equipment and it was now used. I'll be using them as much as I can in the future.

Re: Hermit crabs and turbo snails. #16
Do they need a fully mature tank and will they find food on the live rock and in the tank or do you have to feed them?

Hermit crabs and turbo snails. #17
Are Hermit crabs and/or turbo snails a desirable addition to a marine tank? Do they need to be added when the aquarium is ready for fish or are they more hardy? I've read that hermit crabs can attack certain types of fish which sleep wedged in rocks. Is this a common problem? Finally does it make any difference if they have red or blue legs?

Re: hi to all #18
Your lucky, I'm just setting up and it's so confusing, I'll be overjoyed if I can keep the living rock alive! Putting fish in the tank seems a long way off.
