it's not mandatory, but a skimmer, especially for newbs like us, is a pretty useful thing to have... it pulls a lot of junk out of the water... Smile

yeah, I'd still be a great piece of equipment to have...

kdodds recommended a good quality skimmer that you can find here, you'll need to add a pump as well (also available from that site)...

again, I'm just getting back into keeping marines and before my father did most of the "technical" stuff... "the new marine aquarium" is a great book for us beginners, you may want to look into getting it... Smile

also, have you considered a quarantine tank? Walmart sells a ten gallon w/ top, lights, filter (basically everything) for $29.99 ... it's a great investment... Smile

Well, I will have a 10 gallon left over after all of my upgrades! lol

My current 10 gallon is going to be upgraded to a 15. And the saltwater is going to be a 29, so I'll have the 10 for quarentine Smile
