I guess you have good and bad with all. I have had a 150 in my 75g for 8months. I get about 2 cups a week, sometimes more. The general rule of thumb in adjusting the air valve, is to close it all the way, then unscrew it 1 1/2 times. That should be the general area. You want to have the water in the tube real bubbly. Where you cant see through it. The amount of water that flows back into the tank should not be a huge flow. It want be that much at all.

Well mine is a month or two old and the 100 was abotu a month older than that so they are both pretty knew... the thing that your friend benifits from is that he doesn't use the J connector so the pump has less distance to move the water. That is probably why it is working a bit better for him while in the sump.

Actually, my sump has been set up for about 3 weeks now. My seaclone so far has worked better hanging on the back.

Hmm... well crap is always perplexing I guess. Some works crappier than others.

I guess if you consider it crap......

I know that seaclone is not near the best, but it is better than nothing. Some people may not be able to afford anything better at the time. So I think we should not call what other people use or have crap.

On a side note: I will be upgrading to Remora, ASAP!

I have one so I am allowed to call it crap ... Your right because that is exactly why I bought one. The 100 is better than nothing but the 150 basically is nothing. I also am going to try the remora. So to sum it up Seaclone 150=as good as nothing... Seaclone 100=slightly better than useless...

Your right, you can call your on crap! I have called a few things of my on the same. :P

Seems that my "as good as nothing" 150 is better than your "slightly better than useless" 100. I'm just giving you a hard time!

Anyway, at least the 150 gets me at least two if not more cups of sludge a week. I think we can both agree on the fact that a remora would work better for us.

Hey, gotta run, my 150 sludge cup is about to overflow.......

lol ya I am not sure why mine sucks so bad. I did notice that my tubing running to the air valve was very flimsy not that it would make a big dif anyways.
