[APD] Re: Protein Skimmer

Has anyone ever used a protein skimmer on a freshwater aquarium? Do they reduce
the need for water changes or are they not very effective?


Protein Skimmers don't work on freshwater due to the differences in density between fresh and salt water. To be honest, plants do a much better job of cleansing the water than all but the most efficient skimmers, and then probably even more. Water changes are a fact of aquarium keeping that we can't get around no matter what, unfortunately.
