  • lets talk protien skimmer

    Alright now I am torn between a 40g discus tank or an upgraded 40g saltwater tank... for the 40 I know I'll need a Skimmer and petsmart has one that looked nice so i Google it (its a seaclone good for up to 100g tank so i figured good for a 40g) its a little over $100 so in the budget! Here is the link
    http://reviews.petsmart.com/4830/275...ws/reviews.htm
    Its got an equal mix of good and bad reviews so I am seriously considering it... thoughts? I can't afford anything like those red octopus ones (or whatever they are called) also I won't have a fuge (completely forgot what its called just now) as I I don't want to drill the tank so it will have to be used in tank... I didn't check if it can be put in the display tank yet... sooo yeah thoughts, ideas, issues? Let me have it!

    1.5g Saltwater MTS vase (tough little dudes)
    40g red ear slider tank (Kappa)

    Seaclones are AWFUL. Don't get one. I have one that I don't use anymore.

    Fuge= refugium.

    Lemme see if I can look up the type of skimmer I'm saving for.

      Lol the word I was looking for was sump but yeah fuge/sump won't be added...

      Would the 40 be okay with out a Skimmer for a while? I was thinking of getting the seaclone to test it out and ssee if its worth getting... I want to run a Skimmer while the tank cycles so i can get the hang of using it before i start adding the life stock (I think i just talked myself into an upgrade... lol)

      And yes link away mister :-)

      If i save up a bit more.. I could get this one...
