Going without a skimmer for 3 days

Recommended Posts

Any reason why this would hurt, as i just pulled my current skimmer off of my tank to let it sit in some vinegar for reefnewb, and my new one does not come in until Wednesday

Everything I've read about vodka dosing starts with have a good skimmer.

Otherwise you end up with drunk fish, and SWI (swimming while intoxicated) charges can be expensive if all of your fish are convicted.

nope, it exports nitrate and phosphate out of your tank in the form of bacterial mass.

And i didnt dose while i was out of town, so it has been about 4 days since the tank got a vodka dose. i dont think it will be a big deal :).

So........Dosing vodka is a good way to reduce phophates? I have a 140 gallon, how would you guys recommend me dosing my tank? This is the first I'd heard of it and am wondering the benefits.
