I don't even know what that tube sticking straight up in the air is for.

Not the airline tubing...why on earth would you want the return like that? I don't even know what else it could be.

[QUOTE="Sniperhank;2780123"]ESHOPPS | PSK-75 Not the airline tubing...why on earth would you want the return like that? I don't even know what else it could be.[/QUOTE That is the water level adjustment. I am running the s-150. And the riser tube is turned clockwise to raise the water/foam level and counterclockwise to lower it. I believe on the model you linked it serves the same purpose. The "return" part is the tee below that riser.

Interesting...think it is worth the time? Besides the extra tube it just reminds me of the garbage seaclone I am running...and not skimming...since the reef octopus won't skim.

I have ran a Seaclone before. No comparison. This actually produces a good amount of skimmate and the foaming is thick. Ymmv but so far I am impressed with it. Wasn't expecting it to do this good a job.

Guess I know what to ask for when the birthday rolls around. Maybe then I won't have the nutrient problem.
