My SEAclone in action? Good or bad...

So I have never had a skimmer. I bought this one for practically nothing so even though people bashed it i figured id give it a shot. IMO crappy skimmer>no skimmer. So after one night this is what the collection cup looks like. Looks like it is doing something. Only mod I have done to the skimmer is the bioball mod, everything else is stock. Only other thing I want to do is cut the tube down in the collection tube so the bubbles dont have to rise as far. Anywho let me know if this looks like its doing good or not? Im no professional on it.

Looks from the pic that it is producing clear liquid. What you want is for it to produce dark-colored, disgusting sludge. Or at least a green liquid.

yup. the liquid in the bottom of the cup is that ugly brownish color. I think the condensation is more from the room being hot.

EDIT: I took the collection cup off and took a pic. There is a very dark brown smelling liquid stuff in the cup. For some reason I cant upload the pics on my computer but ill try to add them as soon as i can.

They run in streaks. Sometimes they work, sometimes it is just a powerhead. I have one on my 30 and a Coralife SS on my 55. I change my SS cup 3 times before I change the Seaclone once.

Is yours modded at all? I figured for **** near nothing it would be better than having nothing . Its seems to be doing well for only being on for <2 days.

the best mod you can make to a seaclone is to cut a seal wich prevents the air from escaping between the inner tube of the skimmer and the outer tube of the skimmer and also seals up the collection cup to the skimmer. Try searching the net for a better description.
