skimmers

i own 2 seaclone skimmers and it seams to me that the one in the sump (70gal)with the water level only covering half the skimmer that it seams to do a much better job than the other which is hanging on the back of the tank(55gal) !!! one wondering why for one they both were used with the same fish load but the one now in the sump pulls out twice the amount the other ever did hanging on the back !!! is this typical ??


also is there a way to keep the foam from coming out the top hole ?? the cup isnt even 1/3 full and it bubbles out the top !!

Kudos is just a cool little points thing on the site, the more posts, the more you get.

It is typical of a hang-on skimmer that does not incorporate a surface skimming overflow box. The reason is does so much more in the sump, is because your sump is fed surface skimmed water. DOC's accumulate on the surface of the water, therefore the water in the sump, will have a higher concentration of DOC that the water a few inches down in the main tank.

Send a message via Yahoo to kribbz
also another thing that could contribute to the increased waste collection in the 70 gallon skimmer is simply because it is on a bigger tank.
