    so this weekend i did some major maintainence on my system...120litre water change and disconnecting the skimmer completely and cleaning it out...i though my skimmer wasnt tuned properly or something thats why i wasnt getting good performance....but guess what...ki opened up the pump and found silicone pieces blockeing the impellor...once i cleaned it up and reconncected everything the darn thing was skimming like a beast its said to be(dnw 200) so lesson learned make sure u check ur pump out every now and then for crap

    man tank must be looking awesome now with 4 firefish YOH! i smaak them have to bring my SO around to your place as she really does not like small fish but thats what i want. Nice selection of small fish so water stays nice and clean and less poop in the water also more overall movement in the tank.
