New tank cycling questions

Okay..I have just re-setup a 90 gallon w/ new LR sand, the whole works...the tank needed an overhaul. I was wondering, during the cycling process, should I be running a skimmer and carbon?

okay..I was worried that it would be removing compounds that would stimulate bacterial growth

the bacteria will come.... Just do your water changes and try hard to keep your hands and feet out of the tank and you should be living in tall cotton in 30 to 40 days.

Have Fun!
