I got my Coralife Super Skimmer Today the 65g version for my 55g tank. I am actually very dissapointed thus far.
Right off the get go, the thing is huge. Using it as a HOB
unit is very unsightly. Next, I plugged it in following the directions step by step, and the thing istantly over flows water all over the floor. I have to keep the water level adjustment all the way down to stop it from over flowing water into the cup. and that's with the flow valve only 1/2 way open!!
Then it has the Bubble difuser, that is suppose to stop microbubbles from getting to the tank, it doen't work very well, as there are plenty of micro bubbles coming out of the difuser. That part doen't much matter to me as I don't have any coral, and don't expect to get any, but It's the point...
To top it off and make it all worse, it is LOUD. It has a very loud HUMM.
All-in-all I am just very dissapointed. As for how it works, I don't really have anything to compair it to, so I can't say out of any experience if it works better or worse than another unit.. It's making some foam...
Questions: What is an 03 Ozone Operation? They talk about in the directions? Is the Difuser suppose to over flow water? Which type of skimming is preferred? Wet or Dry?
