    Hey guys, I got an Aqua Remora C skimmer. It is used but was cleaned with RODI water before I picked it up. Will it still have the 2 week "break in" period even though it has already been used? I'm getting quite a few microbubbles in my DT. Thanks!

I gave it a good cleaning, a fairly long vinegar bath, and another good cleaning. There is a single 4'' x 2'' or so...
