Red slime Rx

old salt

Recommended Posts

So I just treated my tank just the way the instructions say on the box I've waited a few days and now I'm ready to turn on everything as it was before. But when I turn on my skimmer it goes crazy and overflows. Any help would be appreciated if anybody has experience with this.

Yeah everyone's skimmer goes bonkers after treatment. It's easier to deal with if you have a DC skimmer (to adjust speed up slowly) but you really just need to let it foam and get the stuff out. Run some fresh carbon and skim with your outlet wide open. Refill with saltwater If your skimming like crazy. I find that it cuts it out after about 30 min to an hour of very wet skimming.
