I use an aqua medic. That thing is a workhorse. Works unbelievably well. I use to have a sea clone to. Now it's a paper weight, that thing was useless.

That skimmer must be a piece of crap. Everybody I've talked to says the sea clone sucks.

I used one for almost a year. It did the job...

That's all I can say for it.

One more stupid question about the collection cups. If the foam is not bubbling over the rising tube will it produce dry skim? Should the foam be in the middle? I think I would like my skimmer to produce dry skim. Please advise!

We have a reef octopus 8 needle wheel rated for 250 gallons. The foam should be toward the top of the center riser. As ours collects in a dry skim it pushes the bubbles over the top into the cup and as they burst they create the liquid you see in a cup. Ours needs emptied about every 5 days.

Thanks. I have a two in one skimmer. But hearing you say you have to empty it out every 5 days helps. I'm starting to get a lot of moist black stuff on the top of my riser tubes so I guess it doing it's job.
