Hello, noob here, I will be setting up a Red Sea Max Nano. I am leaning towards not using the skimmer and using that area for something else (media, macro algae/pods, etc). I have heard it can be done but not sure the best way to implement it. My question is.... Is it better to just not do it from the begining to help stability? Start it off in the begining but remove it later? I’m a crazy person and how could I entertain not using the skimmer? Something I have not thought of.... I am prepared to do 20% weekly water changes and run an Tunze 3155 ATO system. Also I plan on putting an Apex EL on it and running a Jebao RW-4. I was thinking about pointing the return pump up slightly to break the water surface for better gas exchange. I currently have about 15 lbs of Carib Sea Life rock ready to go in. Cheers in advance!
