I have the skimmer in chamber 1; chaeto (macro algae) in chamber 2 with filter floss over the drip tray (DIY fuge light outside on back of chamber 2 (scraped the black film off the glass on back of BC29); in chamber 3 I have an upgraded pump Rio HF6 and a 100watt heater. Then I have a hydor flo on the bulkhead simulating waves into the tank.
I know the people on the previous replies are very knowledgeable, but I thought I would help you out with 1st hand experience with this situation.
hi -- thank you for that info
right now my skimmer is in the 2nd chamber, and I clean my filter floss each day. I've broke off the 1/2 wall on chamber 1 so it provides more flow into the rear chambers. I've left the oem pump in the tank, there's enough flow right now and I have a koralia 1 inside blowing.
