Will be buying a skimmer first, i managed to get my pump back together. With some good old crazy glue. The pump is only a year and a half. So it should hold up untill after i get my skimmer. Going with the marineland 300.

I used the 65 for a year and a half it did great. The problems I had with it is that it would for no reason overflow and there is a flow valve on the tube coming off of the pump that would pop off. I did pull out some mud from my tank.

Its essentially the only protein skimmer that is built to fit perfectly snug within my sump, im also still tumbling cheato in the skimmer pump section! Works well! I may plumb a seperate refugium into my stand, or maybe a wall mounted display fuge over the tank

I run a coralife ss125 and it works great. No problems ever and I don't have to constantly adjust it like others I've had.

That skimmer is running pretty wet, if you have the bubbles adjusted all the way to the top of the neck. I wouldn't set it any wetter than that.

Does the skimmate need to be pushed to thetop of the cup and over? If i dry skim it doesnt push much over the edge if at all, see wherethe top of the green is? Thats the dry skim mark

At the height you have it at, it should be forcing bubbles over. If it's simply stopping at the very top and not coming over, turn it up a little. Skimming wet, the skimmate would look like green water, where as dry would look black.

wet-


dry-
