    Setting up a 90 gallon BB SPS tank and need recs on a new skimmer. I really like my current coralife super skimmer 65 and have thought about getting the CSS220. I've also been looking at the MR-1 by my reef creations. It's a good bit more money and would require me to buy a new pump as well...

    I am currently looking at purchasing the ASM G4x. Secondary to the height of this skimmer being 30 inches, I am a little reluctant to buy it due to the amount of space under my tank. If I do the reciruculation modification and drill a new input hole that will be fed directly from one of my...

    I have a Tourbofloater skimmer that I do not need. It has everything except for the recirc pump. It as a feed pump and collection cup, just not recierc. pump. I am willing to trade for pretty much anything that might be usefull. This skimmer would work fine with the addition of a Rio or OR pump.

    I was cleaning my recirc pump on my skimmer and discovered the ceramic shaft in my Sedra 9000 is now two shafts. Anybody have a replacement shaft for this pump or know where I can find one locally? Thanks Chad

    Thank for all you help in the bi-weekly discussion we just had. Yesterday finally figured out the problem. Thanks to Jena's thread making me think about calculating flows. I found out that my UV even for its size is taking over a third of the pressure/flow away my pump. This then is not...

    Some skimmers have a diffuser plate. I've not used a skimmer with one so I have questions not answers. Is it intended to reduce turbulance? If so how? 1) Seems to me it compresses the turbulance into a smaller area but is more violent which can't be good. Or is it? 2) when using a diffuser...
