How many of you dose with DT's for feeding your inverts?

Would the Protein skimmer and other forms of filtration take the DT's out of my water?

and if so how long should i turn said equipment off per dose?

Thanks in advance ^.^

Dt's

I feed Dt's twice a week at 20ml and I don't turn anything off. Clams are happy and growing like crazy. You probably should turn off the skimmer and pumps but I find that to be a pain. Less problems if I just leave everything on.

Yup, your skimmer will pull it right out. I usually leave mine of for a few hours, but one hour is probably long enough.
