New Acquisition: CPR Bak-Pak 2 Protein Skimmer

Hi guys,

Today I just got a CPR Bak-Pak 2 Protein Skimmer from someone on craigslist, used, but he cleaned it up for just $50, I think it's a pretty good deal. Anyone can help me with it? I'm wondering I need to do any changes to the blue thingy that comes with it. Should I "plug and play" to the fish tank that I have?

Any help will be greatly appreciated

PS: No Manual included, that's why I'm clueless

Thank you

Hey mgamer, actually he's not missing that he just forgot to post the picture and yes, you're right, he's in Covina, but he works in Commerce, so I picked it up from there , closer to West LA.

Frankie, I know huh?! he's actually going to sell the green star polyps to me also , I'm going to his place this Friday, I can't wait, he's only a block away... so close
