I have had mine since I started my 55 in January. It seemed to work the first few months and now doesn't collect any water in the cup. I only have 2 fish in the tank now compared too 10 previously. Could there just not be any protein in my water or has the seaclone nightmare of it not working come to my tank?

Thanks so much guys!! If it wasn't for all you guys my tank would not be doing as good as it is. I give all the credit for the success of my aquarium to you guys. At first saltwater was very frustrating, but now I'm enjoying my tank much more. I'm spend my time watching my tank instead of frantically water testing and trying to fix problems. I'm thinking of trying to make a sump, but the space in my stand is only 9x12x24 so that isn't even big enough for a 10 gallon. I'm thinking a tall, skinny trash can.... or would that not even be worth the trouble? (that isn't enough room for the filter or anything but it would increase my water capacity a little) Think I could do a fuge (with some mud or live rock)? Thanks so much

long and skinny would be better than tall.

If you want all the frustration back, by all means, go for a sump. Once I get mine all set up, I'll be much happier. I'm looking forward to sitting back. I should have listened to my lfs and had him set it all up to start.

The main problem with my Seaclone is that I couldn't get the pump deep enough in the water. I did a little modding with some 3/4" tubing and now I'm getting about an 1/8 of a cup a day.

Are you using the stock air valve? I have learned to live with mine, but others say to switch. That could be the problem.
