My current Air Pump is 2.5 ltr. (i.e. 6.6 lbs) per minute for my Protein Skimmer. Do i need more? My Protein Skimmer box says it is recommended for 80 Gallons? No it didnt came with an air pump. I bought it seperately.

Plz reply today as i will go to fish market tmrw i.e. Sunday to buy air stone. They only sell on Sunday.

One more thing my Glass Anemone Shrimp molted 3 days back but its not showing up anywhere. Is it hiding or is it dead. the skunk cleaner were carrying the mucus covered skin, i just cannot confirm wheter it the shrimp or it was skin. How long do they take to come out ? I checked Ammonia today morning it was almost 0.0 ppm.
I would avoid any Pseudochromis in your tank size, due to possible aggression towards the other fish you currently have. The Royal Gramma would be a much better option, as would a BiColor Blenny. I'm not sure what species you are referring to as a "Purple Flame Goby".

When it comes to air pumps, honestly these types of skimmers are so outdated and rarely used that I have nothing to offer you for comparison. I would normally recommend a Tetra Luft Pump, but these retail for about $50. You wasted your money on the skimmer you purchased, and will now have to spend more money to upgrade to an expensive capable air pump.

Your Glass Anemone Shrimp is probably just hiding. It is not unusual to go a few days after molting without seeing a shrimp.

The Damsel just looks like an abrasion. I wouldn't be concerned. The Clownfish is something to watch. It is nearly impossible to make an honest diagnosis. I would watch it carefully and not do anything for now. You may want to post a picture in the disease area and see if BettaBaby or Cerianthus have an opinion.

I think that protein skimmer is junk, based on the design. There are a dozen skimmers on the market with this same design concept, and none of them work well, based on my experience.

What other options do you have?

Thanks a lot for the concren Pasfur Bro. Okay i will post the pics in Disease Section now and might get help from them.

I don't have any other option for Protein Skimmer in India. I will have to get it from USA or UK. Can you guys help me to get Coralife Protein Skimmer 65 gallons anyways with $80 ie Rs.4,000/-(Indian Rupees). I have a friend brother who stays in US. I think in California. But I will have to confirm it? Can somebody go and deliver this product to him. I will pay it here to his brother and you guys can get the money from his brother over their.
Is anything possible like this? Can this be the cheapest method.

I am getting in Amazon.com

Coralife Protein Skimmer 65 Gallons = $123 with delivery. ($105for skimmer +$17for delivery)
I checked out ebay too. $157 with delivery.($55 for delivery)

Plz reply.
