    Hi everyone Only just signed up to TRT, so be patient. I have just bought a Bubble magus 3.5 skimmer and the pump seems to be noisy, even when disconnected to the skimmer body. Any idea's why? Could/can the needle wheel need replacing?

    Hello, I am having an issue with my protein skimmer. I have read a ton of forums and post regarding this issue but nothing seems to work. I run my skimmer and everything works great for a few hours. The foam builds up but once it starts to overflow into the cup, it suddenly drops to...

    I am sure this has been covered and I did try doing a search for the answer on this forum, but I didn't see it within the first couple of pages and I am too lazy to keep reading. So, I have a 50 gal DT and a 16 gal sump, running for 5 weeks. I just installed a bubble magus nac3.5 skimmer. I had...

    Would it hurt to let the skimmer over flow into my sump? I dosed with chemiclean and its been going nuts. I dont want the water from the cup to hurt my fish or coral. So if the water its producing is bad then I will let it overflow into a bucket. Any thought would help thanks

    I have been running a G1x protein skimmer for about a year now, and I've noticed any time the power goes out or it gets turned off, it wont come back on w/o me taking it apart or waking it. I've read stuff about the magnet swelling which is apparently a problem with these pumps. Now I cant even...

    Cant decide on needle wheel or injection. My tank is centered in the room and I'm concerned about noise but I want a good unit. I need HOB skimmer and would prefer a squared one since the round ones look like coffee makers and stick up above the tank. Considering Reef Octopus BH1000 or Aqua C...

    Hi, I am new to this site. I have just purchased the new innovative marine 38 gallon, does anyone know what type of protein skimmer can be used either inside the back of the filter or a hang on? Innovative marine does not make any protein skimmers to fit their tanks. Thanks.
