I am starting a new 180 gal fish only tank and wanted to know when to start the protein skimmer? Do I start it as soon as I get the tank up or do I wait until the tank finishes cycling?
I say start it when you set up the tank. Bacteria is going to quickly spread through the tank skimmer or no skimmer. You should check out the article in this onths Tropical Fish Hobbyist for more info about the cycle process and how hardy the bacteria really are.
