    Goal: Design, build and document a skimmer that will fit in the stand of a 75/90 gallon tank, and handle a 100 gallon tank using PVC Pipe parts that are readily available at any hardware store/home improvement center. The pump I am using, for now, is the pump that came on a Coralife 220...

    I am trying to decide between the octopus Dnw-200 recirc which is 8inch diameter x 30 inch tall with one needle wheel pump and the octopus ddnw-150 which is 6x24 but with 2 pumps. They are both rated the same. This will go on a 50gallon SPs tank with a 30 gallon sump. Anyone have any opinions...

    Thinking about one of the octopus recirc skimmers and had a question. These skimmers require a pump or to be plumbed to the overflow. Has anyone ever used a needle wheel pump to supply the water?

    I'm working on my new 75 set up and I broke my Octopus NW 200 skimmer. I will need to get a new skimmer, but now I have the pump which is brand new and I can't find a way to get a new skimmer w/o the pump. I was wondering if I could take out the needlewheel part and use the pump as my return...

    I have had a euro reef skimmer for about 3 years now and I woke up this morning to find the PH burned out. So my question is, should I replace it with the same type or is there some better PH I could use.

    Hello everybody. As of today I have started my complete DIY system. First a little background info about myself and how this came to be: My first tank was a 55 gallon reef that I started back when I was 17 (now 22) and it went strong for three years. Being a student with three jobs was rough...

    long story short, I bought this from a guy in Tennessee, and he dropped off at the main offices of the company I work for since he lived only 20 min away from there, and they shipped it to me. UPS did about everything short of running over the box, and broke off collection cup. My company didn't...

    I've decided to upgrade from my 55g to a 90g in a month or so and with the decision, I am going to try my hand at creating a sump. I am far from gifted at building anything, so I'm a little worried right now. In any case, I have a 20L (30X12X12) that I want to use as the sump. My main question...

    Its nice to see all new people here, as some may remember I went on a trip and when I came back most of my corals and some fish were dead. Its time again to head out of town and I must sell all my fish/rock/corals or else they may face a slow death. I have asked a couple of friends but I'll be...

    Hi, Is there anyone using a Coralife Super Skimmer 65 in a sump (not just hanging on it, but in it) at or near 16" tall? If your Skimmer is in your receiving chamber of the sump and the directions say that the needle wheel pump needs to operate in no more than 3"-4" below the water line, then...

    Good morning everyone, Got a small problem with our protein skimmer. It's going gangbusters and putting out way too many bubbles and the water in the skimmer cup is nice and clean. Details: It's a T1.000 Stand Alone in sump skimmer with the AquaMedic Ocean Runner 2500 needle wheel pump...
