Great explanation! Well worth the read and more than appropriate. Do you remember the Buggs Bunny episode where he pretends to be Hawaiian and the only thing he knows how to say is humahumanukunukuapowaha? Kills me every time! Sorry, I know that's so random but just watched it with the kids the other day. Couldn't help myself. lol

I had once read it was something like "the hog snout fish that fits things together". That was a LONG time ago though. Yours sounds way more believable.

"The reef, rectangular, or wedge-tail triggerfish, also known by its Hawaiian name, humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa (pronounced [ˈhumuˈhumuˈnukuˈnukuˈwaːpuˈwɐʔə]), also spelled Humuhumunukunukuapua'a or just humuhumu for short; meaning "fish that grunts like a pig" for the sound it makes when cornered or caught.,[1][2][3] is one of several species of triggerfish."

I've Been looking at skimmers again and I've been thinking about the home town made ( san diego) aqua c ev series,..more than likely the ev 240 with a mag 12 pump,..not that my present skimmer isn't doing its job ok ,but after talking to a friend that has a smaller one and hearing his stories about pulling out junk from his water vs what his old octopus did it has me kinda intrigued ,..I measured my sump and it'll fit into the normal first chamber nicely with room for the pump too., I was wondering if anyone has any hands on experience to share before pulling the trigger.
Yes I do realize how they operate vs the normal type skimmers and about 95% of all the reviews I've read both thru online store sites and other " reef forums" seem to be very favorable ,..I'm still on the cusp about the whole idea but would like any input if available .
