Do I need a skimmer for this little puppy?

I converted a gold fish bowl to a mini SW FOWLR tank. Well not fish.. blue-legged hermit crab so is that COWLR?

or invert? IOWLR?

Anyway you get the idea ;)

to answer that I'm going to say no. However you're going to want a cpf fixture and a nice small filter. You might want to lessen on the rock too but its your tank so use your imagination.

Thank for the reply. The small black box at the back is a micro filter to help circulate the water.

I am thinking of a light fixture. One of those dual output compact fluorescents...

As for the LR .. I am kind of stuck with it where it is. If I take it out, it will die off. Once the other tanks get in place I'll probably move it and upgrade it later.... maybe :)
