Sorry, but I was away for the weekend. Believe me, the protein skimmer being in the first compartment isn't going to send perfect water to the refugium. A lot of water gets by it. I would not want to interfere at all with any pods trying to make it to the return pump. One pump is going to be enough of a challenge, without them having to go through the skimmer pump too.

Thanks for the pictures. I love pictures, explaining forget it, pictures make sense. Do you think you could take a close up of the water flowing from refugium though the baffles to the return pump, I can't quite make it out. If you can't no prob.

Small Update

I have aptasia with nothing to kill it with.

Does anyone know how to make an aptasia zapper and can send me an email with directions (and pictures)?

Still working on sump.

Can't think lately, haven't done hardly anything with my tank or my dog; more issues at work..go figure.

I know the feeling Buffy. I've been having the same work garbage going on slowing down my progress. Just take it slow and it'll be fine . Have you tried the lemon juice or boiling water on the aiptasia? I didn't have much luck with it myself, but others swear by it.

I don't have any lemon juice, I used the last of it for lemonade. Won't do that again.

How do you do the boiling water?

Never tried it myself, only the lemon juice. I'd just take some distilled water and boil it. I do know that they say the key is to hit the aiptasia with it while it is still boiling. You'll need a turkey baster or syringe for this obv.

There are tons of ways to kill it. Do you dose kalkwasser? That stuff will do. Same with hydrogen peroxide, but be careful with it.
