I love garge sales!!!!

I did some garage sells this afternoon and found a brand new never been used seaclone 150 for $20... (I wish I had $150 cause they also had a 180 gal tank with cf/mh light set up as well 8O )So even though they have recieved bad reviews I bought it. I guess it would be better than nothing right? I'll let ya all know how it works out after it's been running for awhile. Any ideas to make it work a little better?

Umm.... I'd say you made a VERY good deal on that Seaclone 150. 20$!! I bought mine a few months ago, brand new, and it cost me close to $150.00 I have it running in my 125 gal. and it's skimming consistently. It is a bit finicky to get going at first but after a break in period, you will be getting steady bubbles and foam. Just keep an eye on it until it stabilizes. Probably not the best of skimmes, but as a starter it is OK, especially if you have a small tank or a light bio load. HTH

Congrats. this is not a bad skimmer. It is fussy and has a longer-then-normal breakin period, but once going it will skim like crazy.

It's been running now for 24 hrs. So far I have a little bit of micro bubbles and about a teaspoon or so of brown liquid in the cup. So I guess it's working.. It took me awhile to get the bubbles set just right. I'm going to do the bio-ball mod to it monday.

Err... Bio ball mod? Please explain? I'm rather curious to know what modification that is.
