Thanks R.M! Do you have a specific brand of phosphate remover you would recommend over another? I'd like to go out today and get some.

Thanks Tim, but I've already bought a skimmer and my husband will have a fit, if I buy more "stuff" now. I have to do things in small steps. . . less noticable to him

That thread is amazing! Wow. That guy in Santa Monica is sure into the hobby!
