Seaclones are OK I have one on my 55 that pulls nice dark green slimmy skim but got to clean j tube collection cup weekly. I got it as a this will do for now but two years later still have it and honestly won't get another til I finish adding my frag tank and sump just because I'm adding about 50 gallons of more water tommy system so going to need a one for more volume of water but honestly I think its good as long as you keep up on cleaning and water changes. Also has taught me a lot about how to mess with and tune it skimmers I know what to look for because of a ton of research so its pulls good skim and kind of makes you keep an eye on the tank but that's just my opinion

I like it! It makes the tank look really deep.

sea clones are not the best skimmers yes but if you bore out the intake ports under the prefilter they work great this is my second one , like anything if you don't fine tune it it will not work right
I use 500gph pumps that I upgraded as soon as I got the skimmers along with fine tuning and tlc I get good results
I empty the skim mate daily
this is my newest skimmer been running 2 days with no issues

well I got around to rearrange my rock work a little kinda like the way overhang looks , making room for the new corals I ordered




it should be here in about 2 weeks I'm not going to say what I ordered just to keep the curiosity going , I will say it cost me almost $400.
I also special ordered my Marine Betta he should be here around the same time
