    Have any of you guys tried a mod I saw on RC where you add a wooden airstone to the bottom of the CPR BakPak Skimmer. You essentially fish the airline and airstone in through the top of the outflow of the skimmer, and back up into the reaction chamber. I'm trying to think of how I can get my...

    I've just recently converted my 70g freshwater to FOWLR....now the dilemma, agressive, semi-agressive or peaceful. Anyone have any ideas on what to fill this tank...go ahead, pretend that it's your very own personal tank. I've come up with three combos but I'm very indecisive so I'm looking for...

    Joe if you change your mind on getting one of those skimmers, pick up a third for me :). I think my mak4 will run three 1" mazzei injectors. Which would be impossible to beat. They are also ozone friendly. To run ozone I would have to figure something out with the o-rings. Yeah this would use...

    HAD 5 Turbo Snail and 1 Nesarrius Snail. They died two days ago, I had them for about 30 hours before they died. All my other fish are doing great in the tank. Is there something else I should know about snails? I acclimated them correctly, and did everything by the book. Could there be another...

    Well after about a month with only freshwater fish to look at I have decided that I need a little reef for next to my computer. Haven't decided if I am going to get a canopy for it or get a pendant to hang over it. I am leaning towards the pendant for heat reasons. Any suggestions would be...

    Ok, so my wife let me spend some money on the tank. Here's what I need to have done (Goal). Build a sump from plexi that includes my Eheim filter, CPR BakPak skimmer, and that's it. I just need ideas of the size of the sump (going beneath a 54 corner), how to blend filter and skimmer in sump...

    Hi guys- I was at the LFS and saw a CPR BakPak skimmer for $159 rated for a 75 gallon, I think- I have a 30 gallon and a pretty light fish load- Are these skimmers any good? It was a HOB- I don't want to spend $175 on a crappy skimmer, so please let me know what you guys think and if they work...

    I have a 75g drilled tank with a 15g sump (hopes to be a refuge someday!) and I would like to get a better skimmer for my tank. I currently have a CPR bakpak skimmer, but it doesn't seem to be getting any skimmate at all, even though I have the collection cup lower than recommended. Anyway...
