Question for Remora Pro Users....

I have noticed alot of "stuff" growing inside my remora, should I clean em out? If so what is the best way that you folks use? I have the remora out now to clean the pump and such but thats when i noticed all the "things" inside it. With the wierd shape of the Remora I doubt I will be able to get all of it if a clean vote is offered.

Dave

I just cleaned mine out...
Not worth the effort. It looked like more then there really was. I had MAYBE 1/8th in of "stuff" on the bottom of the skimmer...
IT was still working great just wanted to clean it.. I won't be doing that for another year I bet !
