sps worthy skimmer for a 20L


New member
i am having nitrate problems in my 20L. i am now keeping them around 10 with my new remora skimmer but i am not liking it too much. i want to get it to 0. the bioload on my 20 isnt too bad. i have 3 pjs, a neon dottyback, mandarin and a harlequin shrimp.

before i had the skimmer i was maintaing 20 with a non productive fuge, and bi-weekly water changes. now i am doing changes once a week and 10 seems like the number

i am thinking a asm g1x, euroreef rs-80, or an octo 110. i would like to do the octo 110 for the cost factor, but if it wont keep my nitrates at 0 i wont get it.

Do you still have your fuge? Also are you checking your TDS on your water source?
How big of water changes are you doing?

tds is zero as i use r/o and yes i check it.

5 gallons weekly

no the "fuge" was my wetdry with a sandbed and cheato and caleurpa. it didnt work, nothing grew and i think it was more destructive than productive. stuff got caught in sand and rotted.
im going to make one, im looking into the cpr aquafuge or my extra 20L
