Do you use a protein skimmer?

  • 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 build up enough to warrant one.

  • I’ve used one for my bigger tank and has a few dead spots in terms of the water movement on the surface. I think Fluval has a internal filter with the protein skimmer at the top, which is what I’d recommend for a standalone unit.
