Do you see or have experienced that the use of a bit of ozone in combination with the skimmer is harmful for an octopus?
-For my trouteggs and trouthatchlings it was not problematic at all (although I was told that it may be harmful to them).

I have never used ozone in any of my tanks and believe the simplest set ups tend to work the best. What is your reason for wanting to add ozone?

It's basically the same reason what it was with my troutfishes: To be sure no Nitrite will ever appear in the water.

Currently the tank I am working with uses ozone with the skimmer and to be honest I have not had much success. More often then I would like I find the skimmer not to be skimming as well as I would like or not at all and having to disconnect and reconnect it all to get it going.

I think ozone reduces the amt the skimmer needs to remove. I used ozone for a couple of years and the skimmer did not have to work as hard. You just have to carefully monitor it with a controller.

Did you use your ozone as a side or attached into your skimmer? The one I have seen/been working with- has it attached so that the ozone runs into the skimmer. This just seems not to work.
