    I wouldn use special blend as it throws out skimmer performance , instead a vial of each prodibio products biotim and biodigest aswell as stop ammo.... Or even stability ...all avail @ any lfs, advantage of prodibio is that u can buy it in loose vials @ R20-R25 per vial and one vial of each is over enough to populate even big tanks

    You need to switch your skimmer off when you use it, besides why skim when you have nothing in your tank, especially if its dead base rock! Special Blend works very well!
