Damn, and I thought I was doing things ok with mine. I've got the LR and my CSS65 on a 16 gallon. But that's only 4.0625X more than the water volume :smash: . Back to the drawing board. :duh:jhale said:spykes has the right idea.
let the rock in the tank handle the bacteria, and then use a skimmer rated 5X more than the water volume. easy to do on a smaller tank.
