I know its a bit of a tough question as everyone has their own views on this.

Tank is 130L

1 Midas blenny
2 Ocellaris clowns

I quite like it being understocked as it means less cleaning and maintenance for me.

If I buy a sixline wrasse will I still be able to stick to a single 10% water change a week etc?

Boyu 310 (its a nano skimmer but works quite well) - all the guys overseas were upgrading their nano's with this model

Well until you know the maximum volume at low and heavy stocking of your tank, you shouldn't test it too hard, have a little google or ask at the store where you got it, don't let them fob you off with vague replies though, there will be a specified design limit for that skimmer.

matt - even with the six line -you will still be way understocked and can easily get away with the 10% water change - you can even add 6 fire gobies and be ok

Hi Shan, what do you base the calculation on? not having a dig, but Matt should be able to understand how you came to your conclusion. That way he will be able to decide for himself.
