Hey Keith,....I spent all day yesterday extending my tanks cabinet another 6-8 feet ,..in the process I had to cut up the old tv stand etc etc,..what a mess !!!! So far I have all my fingers but out of beer !
I did build a little super mini walk in closet at the side of my tank where my new skimmer lives,..just enough room to step in and do the adjustments,cup removal etc,...unlike Greg's or Doug's ,I guess that'll have to do for my fish room .
Late in the day the new skimmer did arrive,.but by then ol'Dary was about had it,...I did find enough spirit later to take the time to plumb in both of my available pumps via the twist apart fittings,..right now she's all plumbed up with the blueline 55 pump,and that'll be the one I'll try first,...it's a beautiful ,heavy duty, heavy wieght monster ,if she skims 1/2 as good as she looks we'll have a winner.
If I can clear a path thru the saws,2x4's , all the crap that i piled up from moving stuff around I'll do my pwc
that I was going to do yesterday AND then I can start up the new skimmer and ck for leaks and get her broken in,...she looks impressive enough to have come off of a alien space ship.
Right now I'm having my morning cup of coffee trying to get up off the couch and get these old bones moving,...illl update later.
