Well it appears to be working just fine. The collection cup is slowly filling with brown liquid. Just took a while for the break in period. Also, I have a very light bio load for now.

I'm new to this site and SW tanks and am researching skimmers. I was curious about the Turboflotor Blue 1000. I have a 55 gal.
Why can't I see the pictures that cmore1701d put up? Any advice on the skimmers would be appreciated. My tank has a wooden topper

This thread is over 7 yrs old! That skimmer is even more outdated than this thread.

Look into Octopus skimmers. Great performance and a very good price. This would work nice for a 55g. What's a wooden topper?

I have the Turboflotor 1000 and I wish I could fit an Octopus in my sump with out tearing down the tank. The T1000 is ok but the Octopus Extreme is a much better skimmer
