Gonna wait and see what Aqua Medic says then might just say H*&& with it and buy a Octopus 150. Everybody seems to love them. Been looking at them for awhile now and this might be the reason to go ahead and do it

if you are referring to inside the skimmer reaction chamber, you can adjust the water and air mixtures with those 2 adjustment knobs, if i remember correctly.

the octopus skimmers are decent for the money. i've owned a few of them and have no major complaints.what size system are you working with?

Yes the 2 knobs control that I have added a 3 control by adding the ball valve. If AquaMedic can't straighten it out by this weekend I will be ordering the Octopus Extreme 6.4(150) for my 55g

well i can actually say that the skimmer has been running better than it has ever ran before since talking to marinedepot and them helping me get it dialed in. It collects more gunk than ever about 1/4 to 1/2 cup a day!
