I'm using an eshopps psk75h but I hate it. It never wants to skim properly. I run my lights at 100% and quite blue but they probably don't need to be at 100%.

For the record, when I got my replacement pump for my psk it skims much better. Best skimmer I've had now because of it.

Yours is in sump though right? I feel like the hob models suck in comparison. Mine pulls a light tea, nothing else and only after I mess with it for a while

Yes, in sump. Before the pump died all I ever got was a light tea as well. This new one, though I still think it is working itself in some, is skimming less but much darker. Been thinking about reading up on vodka dosing and such to go along with that...ended up reading about that zeovit stuff last night instead.

I dose vinegar and see no real difference. I'm actually weening of of it because I think I'm doing more harm than good with it but I've just had a bad experience all around with it. Zeovit is supposed to be awesome

What I thought was really neat was how it is basically using an upside down canister filter...but with the ability to clean the media off like you would clean your golf balls off. More reactor types should be like that. My media is extremely clogged with gunk at the end of 30 days.
