    I was thinkin,I have been using fauna marine ultra bio and ultrabak on
    My DT with great results.
    I'm doing a waterchange 2moro and was thinkin when doin that is it ok to
    Dose the fauna afterwards?coz then the skimmer will be off for few hours.
    Thing I'm worried about is it ok to not have skimmer on just after a water change?

    Another is it ok to have ur hands in the tank just after dosing the bacteria or will it interfe sumhow?or will ur
    Skins oil react to it negativly?

    I always dose after doing a water change.

    Think of it this way. The water you are taking out is old the water you putting in is full of good things.

    I always have my hands in my tank. I dont see a problem with it. If you worried you going to have your hands in the tank then rather dose after that.

    Hope this helps explain.
