    why do i keep losing tangs??

    coralife or redsea skimmer?

    i have the coralife skimmer myself, and boy does it put out!! i know that sounds like a commercial, but it really does the trick on removing organics from my 46g. if i dont wash my hands before i stick them into the tank, the skimmer will throw a bubble fit trying to remove the oils that i put...
