Just to keep it fair and balanced , I pulled my Prizm out of the garage last month and put it back on my 30g. After days of tweaking and pulling both a wet and dry foam....I was unable to get anything but a watery, very weak cup of tea by the end of each week. I just don't find this to make any difference in the tank, especially not for the $100 price tag back when I bought it. Is anyone pulling out anything thicker and darker, I would like some other opinions....photos would be even better. It's tough to quantify sometimes what is a light/medium/heavy bioload so I wouldn't mind comparing.

I really hated mine a first also. I did finally figure it out though. It is vry sensitive to adjustments and it seems that if you can see the adjusting knob move that you went to far.

Any chance you can take a pic of the full (partially full) collection cup?

Exactly! Mine is the same...same adjustment level and it also quits once in a while...not very often and a cleaning always puts it back in operation. I'll try to get a pic of mine tomorrow for you as well.
