    Hey guys I just found a leak where my overflow pipe goes through the bottom of my tank, so I disconnected the sump for now and put my skimmer in the tank with the bio cubes untill I can sort it out a bit later, just a few questions.

    Can I run the cubes without the skimmer and for how long?

    The water taken out I suppose cannot be used again?

    Depending on your bio load and quantity and quality of liverock you could run without a skimmer for a couple of days to weeks.
