It would depend on what you want. What type of inhabitans you have. As for your skimmer, it might just need time to break in.Island_bouy said:How many circulation pump I need for a 55 gal. I have two right now that have a flow rate of 1050 gph each. Is that enough or do I nee another one?
The skimmer is coming along really good, like you said it probably do need time to break in. As for the tank I don't have anything in there as yet. It is 55 gal with 70 pds of rocks, in the curing phase right now. I plan on having coral, at least two clown fish, tang, cleaner crew just the name a few...of course I will not overcrowd my tank. Will that be good for the kind of circulation I have in there now. I just added another wavemaker because I found a dead spot in the tank. Now I'm pretty sure I have circulation going everywhere, is that too much. Thanks for the helpATP said:It would depend on what you want. What type of inhabitans you have.

Stang ManStang Man said:Hey island - bouy This is a venturI type skimmer that needs a pump of 680 + gallons per hour the bottom line going in is the feed line and the two top lines are for return the little tube is the feed to the venturI which sucks air into the skimmer on bottom end near the feed tube which is the line to hook up a pump> these are the best skimmers ever made and I have the same skimmer that you are talking about.As long as the pump is large enough you will have all air bubbles in chamber. What part of Jamaica are you from?If you need more info I have the manuel for this skimmer!!! By the way I miss Jamaica soooo bad!!! Yeah Mon!!!
I did and it is working like a charm, thanks for the help, thanks for the help. I check out your tank and it is beautful, hopefully I come close like that one day.ATP said:The skimmer should be venturI so no need on air pump. Have you tried adjusting the skimmer?
I haven't heard anything new from Sizzla, I have a bunch of reggae music of course lolo, but there is different type of reggae....which of course I'm pretty sure you know about....the real cool vibes kind, like sizzla, and the hardcore type like elephant man, vibes Kartel, bounty killer etc. Living in JA is very expensive, and honestly the enonomy there is way worse than here. Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful place and my people is much more closer and true friends than the people here but unfortuately the government sucks really bad and have pretty much brought the island to its knees. Apart from that, I just went to the LPS and got my water tested and I have 0 ammonia...pretty happy about that. But I dicided not to put any fish in there until I get my lights. I want to put a glass canopy and then the lights over it, what you think about that??? I have a feeling with the glass cover it probably would cause the tank to keep a little heat, raising the temp. of the aquarium. Thanks a lot for all your help.Stang Man said:Yep as long as bubbles are pushing up ward then it should be working properly. what pump size are you using? no need for an air pump it's venturI driven.As for the inlet air tube yes that can be used for oxidizer there should be two cups for that ourpose if you decide to do that the bottom cup is for collection and top cup is for carbon you must fill the cup all the way up with carbon or you will get monoxide from the oxidizer I don't use that part don't have the funds for that but maybe someday!!! As for going back to Jamaica I would love to I wish I could live there but due to the economic of US that's out of the picture for now but I really want to go back to Ocho Rios what a beutiful place that is and the reefs are totally awsome. If you ever need anything let me Know will be glad to help. Oh and Regae music is my Fav!!! love it !!! Has Sizzla put out anything new? Write me back please.
Actually I shouldn't have said canopy, it is more of a hook, but the flat glass type, hope you know what I mean. As for the kind of pump I'm using for the skimmer it is a Rio 1700. Actually I was planning on waiting for at least three weeks before I decided to get some fish. My nitrites and nitrates is at 0 also, I use this thing call an Bio-spira, that cycles your tank in 24 hrs. When I first got my rocks I had them sitting in an container with salt water and an pump for a week with the bio-spira in it. Sizzla is really bad to be honest. You should listen to some Beres Hammond, he is one of the most love and respected reggae artist back home. But who knows you probably got all his albums lolo.Stang Man said:Yes I have all those bands but I wish Sizzla would put a new album out!!! He's a bad boy!!! A glass canopy what do you mean about that? Sounds cool though and about fish if you just started this tank I would hold off for awhile till nitrites rise and fall then nitrates rise and fall as well then after that you will be ready for fish get some good test kits to monitor tank.
