    Yip, I read that yesterday and the first thing that popped into my head was Dallas, then Crispin popped in as well, so I closed the page before the fight started :tt2:

    I'd like to try that, maybe after I've moved my tanks to the fishroom but would like to do more reading first. I have read somewhere not so long ago if one uses miracle mud either in sump or tank, a skimmer is not needed. I saw something on you tube here's the links,

    I still say it comes back to the aquarist and maintenance as I've seen amazing systems each with different filtration, from DSB's, skimmers, no skimmers to only live rock and water changes.
