Skimmer attachment for canister filter?
I have been keeping freshwater tanks for awhile now and I've decided to take the plunge into the saltwater side of things. I have always been following the saltwater threads here on the forum and I have done a bit of research myself. The tank i am planning on is a 20L FOWLR. I have a canister filter on my take right now and I know the traditional filtration methods for freshwater tanks are bad for saltwater but I found a skimming attachment for a canister filter and wondering if anyone had any experience with these.
Also is there any way I could use the actual canister, because I know the media in it now isn't too great for saltwater filtration, like can put rock in it to hopefully turn into live rock? Any help is greatly appreciated.
By 20L, you mean 20 gallon long, right? I suggest you do buy this surface skimmer and run the canister filter with just activated carbon in a filter sock. This will rid the system of abundant Dissolved Organic Compounds, but you should clean the filter once a week to reduce the buildup of detritus in the filter sock.
Yea its a 20 gallon long tank. The canister filter I have is a Fluval 106 so I have 2 compartments and a big block of foam. So the optimal configuration would be carbon in both compartments and remove the block of foam?
Yes, that is the setup I would go with.
