Thank you! The heater and skimmer just kill me, theres so much crap within the tank. I have an inline hydor heater hiding somewhere within my house that I cannont find, and I'm also shooting to get an inline diffusor soon. I'm pretty sure the skimmer is unnecessary, running an airstone through the night keeps the surface pretty much film free.
If I had an inline diffusor, then I would not need to use a powerhead to distribute the c02.... overall I definitely agree that the tank would look more appealing clutter free.
