lots of micro bubbles right now. The water coming out of the pipe hits the top water and it doesnt help either. I basically put some of a poly filter bag over the outlet and that stopped it. Goin to home depot now to find a 3/4" cap that ill cut and just put the foam in there and put it over the outlet. Other than that its skimming great. Already have about 1/2" of green sludge and larger chunks on the sides.

Thanks for the compliments . Im just glad its done i was consumed with it for too long, and my wife was getting pissed that i love it more than her . Little does she know i still have to tweak it to get rid of the micro bubbles but that shouldnt be too hard. Only problem is i have to find a new diy project now. Maybe a unique refugium next Here's an updated pic after 12 hours of skimming my 10g nano, cant believe the crap this thing is pulling out, i love it

ya the spray injection is easy. I just used a 1/2" cap on the end of a 90 degree elbow, drilled a hole in it and thats it. I also have other nozzles ill try later that i made. The thickness is 3/16th's.
