So still waiting for dry rock, super glue gel, and epoxy putty. BUT, I thought I would try my hand at a diy protein skimmer for my tank. I am consistently having a pretty solid layer of film on the surface of the water and I am also getting what looks like Dinoflagellates (snotty brown stuff with bubbles. Since I already change 1 gallon of water a week and I use chemipure and a phosphate absorber in my hob
, I am thinking that trying to remove the dissolved solids using a protein skimmer might be the way to go.
So I got a few throw away bottles, a small container, hot glue, rubber bands, wood air stone, and some airline tubing. Most of this I already had with the exception of the air stone.
Anyways, I built the contraption and here it is before securing it the the Hob
Here it is bubbling away.
I just put it in and have had to make a few adjustments in air flow so far. I am think if this as a pro type and I anticipate some changes in the near future.
