    Do you use a protein skimmer for your freshwater tanks, and if so, what made you set one up?

    I personally use one for my turtle tank, however I don’t use it in any of my other fish only tanks since I never really had a protein layer on the surface…

    I’ve always placed it as it says on the box, so horizontal.

    I have but sadly it seems like any tank of water I leave outside gets bugs that start to grow in it and it becomes pretty nasty.
