I don't think it is possible, I have seen other threads on here saying that its not bad too.

The way I see it is get all the bad crud out of the water haha

Trust me spend the money and get the good skimmer. I've had the Seaclones before and yes they work but once you get a good (octopus or similar) skimmer you will notice exactly how much better the good brands are. Spending the money once on a good skimmer sure beats buying a cheap one now and then regretting it and buying an upgrade later.

The only reason I bought a cheaper one is because I'm in college and don't have that much money, I think when I move out and get my own place I'm going to go big and get the best equipment.

I absolutely agree. If your praising a seaclone then you will be blown away when you upgrade to a more efficient skimmer. Hob skimmers are inefficient to begin with so really you get what you pay for when it comes to HOB models.

I don't disagree with you at all I guarantee that I will be blown away by the expensive ones, I want ones but right now I can't afford them, that's y I like the sea clone, just bc it's a cheap decent working skimmer for me
