    No reson not to do this


    but using M Mud , DBB, Algae makes the nutrient processing more efficient

    All depends on the Bio Load and what corals you wish to keep

    using a DSB with Algae or MM allows far higher stocking whilst maintaining water quality

    I nether skim nor have a filter sock
