    Well, I bought it 2 years ago, been having trouble off and on for the whole duration. I learned not to power it off in fear it won't go back on. Today I removed the cup for the cleaning and popped off the vent tube for a cleaning as well. When I went to put it back on, the pump just stopped...

    I'm running a reef octo nwb250 now and am just not happy with it..very inconsistent skimming and it's time to upgrade the pump being as that's really the only difference between this and "higher end" models...I was looking at doing a bubble blaster pump but anyone else have any other...

    Ok, I decided to get the skimmer up and running. Plug it in, nothing. Fiddle with this, mess with that. Still nothing. Feel the pump itself, I dont feel anything, no vibration. I check on Coralife's website and I dont see them selling just the pump. Do I have to get a whole new unit...

    Ok, here's one for you.... My Eshopps PSK-200 stopped skimming this evening. I pulled it out and pulled the motor apart. Everything looked great. I put it back into my sump and started it up and it started pumping like crazy.... Except, there were no bubbles in the skimmer. I forgot to attach...

    Looking to buy a couple of pumps that will work on my 400 Aqua Euro. The pumps that it is using right now are eu k590gal/h. From what I hear there are several that could work. If you have any lying around please let me know. I live in Virginia.

    My Sedra 3500 just crapped out again. I have had a G2 skimmer from ASM since 2005 and am very happy. The original pump lasted 5 years. I had to replace it last March and now the replacement is dead. I have a call into ASM because it is still under the 1 year warranty. Let's see if they call...

    I have a used skimmer that came with a sump from my LFS. Problem is it doesn't have a pump, and being the newb I am, I really don't trust myself to make that choice without some adult supervision. Here are the specs, it's for a 90 gallon aquarium, the body diameter is 6". The overall height is...

    The pump on my rs skimmer went bad (wires broke off inside) and i need a new pump. I tried to contact euro-reef but i guess there out of buisness. My question is, can and were do I get a new pump for this? Is there an upgrade from the stock pump? If the pump were changed to a higher flow...

    I think this might have been better off in the Think Tank but wasn't sure so it is here so it gets more exposure. If you take tap water and treat it with tap water conditioner to neutralize the chloramine, is the resulting compound one that a skimmer would pull out? Not sure what got me to...

    I have a EuroReef skimmer currently using a Sedra 3500 Needle Wheel Water Pump. The pump seized and I need to replace it. On other skimmers it is fairly common to get a bigger pump, but Euroreef is known for their great skimmers so I am hesitant to change anything. What should I get to...

    I have a 90 gallon predrilled tank that I just set up about a week ago. I noticed that when the water returns to the tank it comes out into the tank at a really fast rate causing the water to make bubbles all in the tank. Is there something I can put on the return inside the tank to cut down on...

    Originally, my plans were to buy the lights and filtration system off of the 120 setup to put on my 90G tank. I ended up buying the entire setup. This is a picture of the Dining Room they are sitting in. The 120 is on the right, the 90 is on the black stand. When I first got it, I intended...
