I have a protein skimmer that came with my tank, from a Salt Water setup. Is there ANY reason to run it in my freshwater tank? Or put it for sale?

Depends on the size of your freshwater if it needs a skimmer or not. As long as it is compatable then you should be okay.

Voyager,

No, there is no advantage to running a protein skimmer in a freshwater aquarium. It won't function properly anyway. Skimmers/foam fractionators, can be run on outdoor pond set ups with the organic and nutrient loads likely to be found outdoors. Bottom line, if you want a fresh water only tank, sell the skimmer.
