Yeah I am having trouble with Google pics. I will give the skimmer some more time to break in. I am getting lots of flow from the pump. Once I get some waste in there I will post how it's doing. Thanks

One more question. If my tank is cycled but have no live stock should I just turn the skimmer off till I start producing bio load?

If your tank is cycled, why no livestock? How long do you plan on leaving empty? You need some waste in there or the bacteria will die off.

Couple more days. This is my first attempt at a reef setup. Not sure how I am going to start stocking yet. Most likely this weekend I will start.

Just a quick update. Took my platform apart made longer legs so it was only sitting in 8 inches of water and it works perfectly now. So if anyone is running a deltec sc1455 make sure it is not in water over 8 inches even though manufacturer says that is within parameters. I found a couple helpful posts on this as well. Thanks.
