    skimmer and fuge placement

    Hey people time for me to look for your help yet again. I have a 12" cpr hang on fuge coming next week. I will be using a corallife dual 9w canopy on it for lighting. Due to size limits on the current tank I have to place it next to my skimmer. Its just a plain jane skilter 250. (thats the next upgrade coming) Just curious if the placement of the fuge so close to the skimmer will cause any ill effects besides those damn microbubbles.
    Thanks in advance,
    John

    The only ill effects I see is that you may be skimming out some good "bugs" that normally make their way from your fuge back to the tank...

    However, being that the skilter is only placed next to the fuge, the impact would only be minimal.

    I say go for it.

    Now the next question I have, is that what effects well I have from your experience or knowledge if I use some new carib sea substrate with a bit of the same stuff that already in my tank to help seed it? I'm curious if I will have a mini cyc;e again in the fuge thats all.

    If you're only placing new substrate in the fuge, while keeping the display untouched, you should be ok. I personally don't see why there'd even be a mini-cycle.
