    Purple Monti Cap

    So I was cleaning the glass on my tank, as one does on a beautiful Saturday afternoon (oh wait?). Anyway, I hit a portion of my purple monti cap and knocked it off.

    Yellow Candy Hogfish and McCosker's Flasher Wrasse, but I noticed the spots as I was putting the fish in the tank, so i'm 99% sure it wasn't them.

    I found my clownfish with two reddish bumps on its side just behind the head. See attached photo. Any idea what this is and how to treat it? The aquarium is several years old, fish only, not a reef. SG is normal - 1.025, last fish was added about 5 minutes before noticing these spots...

    Help with new skimmer

    It's an internal sump, so there is no feed pump necessary. The water just goes into the skimmer from the sump through the inlet pipe. The skimmer pump is the one that comes with the device - the Bubble Blaster 5000 pinwheel pump, rated for 480 GPH.

    Help with new skimmer

    That's what I was thinking, but wasn't sure. this is the first time I'm installing a new skimmer in an existing tank. should I just let the skimmer run and let the foam overflow back into the sump while it's breaking in? thanks!

    Help with new skimmer

    No, the only adjustment is the physical placement in the sump and the outlet valve previously mentioned. I have the height in the sump in the exact middle of the recommended range by the manufacturer. thanks.
