    The skimmer is spotless. I don't remember how many pounds of sand I bought, but it is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in there. It is all white and clean. I even placed my live rock on top of pvc circles to...

    Thanks - I care about the fish a lot and I want to add more. 2 Clowns aren't enough, but I won't risk the health of any new fish if the nitrates are really 80-100.
