K so i been lurking for a few years. Thought I would finally show you guys my tank. This tank has been through alot of changes. I started with a skimmer and fuge. Ran like that for about a year. Then I replaced the fuge for an ATS. Ran like that for about another year. And finally I decided to take the skimmer off, because I feed my corals alot and didnt like my skimmer removing all the beneficial stuff. So i've ran nothing but an ATS for about 6 months and I can tell no difference now than when I ran both the skimmer and the ATS.

Tank is 75 g
fish stock is
-yellow tang
-2 clowns
-tailspin blenny
-firefish goby
-5 green chromis
-orange line chromis
-yellow watchman goby
-yellow clown goby

I feed about 2-3 cubes daily and alot of zooplankton daily.

Screen is 6"x7" waterfall type enclosed in an acrylic box. Very similar to turbo's design. Lit by 23w CFL on each side for 18 hours a day.

hope I did the image correctly

Very nice. Must love the low maintenance :)

Yes the skimmer was just removing food particles; now you've got more food in the tank and less weekly chores.
