I just set up my new 50 gallon Seaclear tank and I wanted to install my HOB
AquaC Remora skimmer to the back of the tank, but the lip on the back of the tank is 2 1/2 inches wide and the AquaC Remora Skimmer only goes out about 1 1/4 inches. I tried installing the skimmer on the back of my wet dry filter which is located underneath my tank, but I had to add 8 inches of flexible PVC
tubing in order for the pump to be submersed in water. It appeared as if it was working, but I noticed that the skimmer is only flowing water and is not generating any bubbles. I think this is because I had to add so much extra tubing to fit in order for the pump to be submersed. I assume that adding the extra tubing has lowered the GPH
because the pump has to push the water that extra distance before it gets to the skimmer. Does anyone know if this is the reason that my skimmer is only pumping water and not creating bubbles?
I had moved all of the water and inhabitants from my old 35 gallon into this new 50 gallon. Prior to switching tanks, the skimmer was pumping out a lot of foam and waste, so I don't think the lack of bubbles is a result of the new tank set up. Is there a way to install my AquaC Remora skimmer to the back of my Seaclear tank? If not, is there a way to hang it on the back of my wet dry and get it to work properly if I have to install extra tubing for the pump to be submersed in water?
