 On  the  skimmer  i  have  a  few  suggestions:
 
 The  skimmer  is  an  in  sump  model  so,  please  try  to  place  it  inside  the  sump.  The  Weipro  models  are  not  properly  calibrated  and  so  you  will  definitely  have  to  maintain  a  higher  water  level  than  what  is  indicated  on  the  skimmer.  The  water  level  indicated  is  for  the  level  in  the  sump  and  not  inside  the  skimmer.  Inside  the  skimmer  you  should  maintain  water  level  about  4  to  6  inches  below  the  collection  cup.  Keep  the  air  intake  fully  open.  Try  using  an  over  rated  pump  than  what  is  indicated  in  the  skimmer.  You  may  have  skimmate  overflowing  for  a  couple  of  days  and  you  will  have  to  play  with  the  water  level  and  air  intake  by  trial  and  error  for  the  skimmer  to  settle  down.  This  has  been  my  experience  with  Weipro  skimmer  before  i  finally  gave  up  and  bought  a  better  skimmer.  If  you  can  afford  go  in  for  a  change  in  skimmer  and  use  this  as  a  spare!!!

 Everything  is  perfect...  but  i  guess  the  blue  starfish  you  are  taliking  about  is  linkia  starfish..if  its  that,  then  its  a  really  difficult  starfish  to  care  for  and  very  delicate.  its  too  early  to  add  starfish....you  can  go  for  choclate  chips  or  brittle.  why  u  wana  stockup  QT  tank?  its  for  new  fish  or  ill  fish....  for  QT,  just  a  skimmer  and  some  powerheads  for  flow  is  enough...  i  guess  its  better  you  keep  it  empty,  if  any  of  the  fish  becomes  ill,  you  can  add  it  in  the  tank  at  that  time  for  treating....

 Nope  its  not.  i  am  trying  to  upload  the  pics  but  not  uploading  dont  know  why  ??
 yeah  i  know  its  difficult  thats  the  reason  i  am  asking  everyone.  the  QT  will  be  for  my  new  fishes  as  well  as  for  ill  fishes.  
 my  plan  is  to  keep  any  fish  for  2  weeks  in  this  QT  before  introducing  them  to  display  tank.  this  is  my  emergency  QT  not  permanent  QT  .....

 If  you  can  get  out  the  powder  blue,  would  be  better.
 
 I  have  NEVER  kept  a  powder  blue,  but  supposedly,  they  can  be  aggressive,  and  better  to  add  them  last.  I  have  observed  that  some  species  of  tangs,  usually  Zebrasoma,  can  get  quite  aggressive  when  dwarf  angels  like  the  flame  are  added  after  them.  This  is  just  my  experience.
