Does anyone else love the smell of your skimmer's cup?

Is it just me, or does anyone else take in the lovely smell of your protein skimmer's cup before you clean it?

So freah and evocative of the ocean.

I'm serious!

If it's supposed to smell gross than maybe I'm doing something wrong. Either that or I'm just used to the smell of the 'Jersey shore : )

Maybe you should consider increasing vegetable intake in your diet

Shure when I had a skimmer hooked up to my saltwater tank way back when that was the highlight of my day.
