View Full Version : Solana/Cardiff Skimmer Question

01-20-2009, 7:36 PM
It just dawned on me that the protein skimmer that comes with the Solana/Cardiff is stuffed with little bio balls whose function is to cut down on bubbles in the outflow.

I'd rather not have them in there functioning as a nitrate factory. Has anyone used this skimmer without the little balls keeping the bubbles in check?

I did before I upgraded, as most solana owners do. After it breaks in, the MB subside.
