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When it comes to air pumps, honestly these types of skimmers are so outdated and rarely used that I have nothing to offer you for comparison.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.
