My skimmer pump died recently and to be honest, I just wasn't stoked about my skimmer so....Despite the insane price tag I decided to upgrade to the regal 300sss 12" space saver. Upon arrival we wiped down with a little vinegar, made a few mods to the sump area and on day 1 it was producing some pretty good skimmate!

I also attached the collection cup to my drain and man o man, that is soooo awesome. Being able to flip a value and drain the nasty every other day without removing the cup is fantastic! Happy fish and happy fish daddy!

It looks awesome. I'm wondering how much noise you have and if you have any smell as it looks like your equipment is all under your stand. Do you get any complaints from your wife.

Thank you! No equipment is under the tank so noise isnít bad...just some from the wave makers. Sometimes they get a bit noisy like a dishwasher which the wife doesnít love but tolerates. No smell.
