The smaller the tanksize the bigge the skimmer!

An Octo produce a lot of dirt and the few water in your tank should be clean enough for it. I think a powerful skimmer is necessary.

By the way I think your small tank is right large enough for a Bluering, not more! Think about to get a biggaone!

whoa so the smaller the tank the BIGGER the skimmer must be?
wow first time heard such things since.......inverse proportions :lol:

It's actually quite easy to understand: The smaller the tank, the quicker the water gets polluted thus the bigger has the skimmer to be to effectively get the stuff out fast enough.

Also your tank IS too small. I'm sorry but thats an unalterable fact :|

It's natural for people to pick up the name you've chosen, which is "moron_aaron".

The best way to avoid being called "moron" is not to make it part of your TONMO name, since it appears whenever you post.
