Ahhhhhhh, dangit. And when was it cleaned last before yesterday? I clean mine once a week with a scouring pad. A clean skimmer is an efficient skimmer.

My camera crapped out on me, but cleaning the bak pak this morning was like going into a sewer. Thick black sludge in the throat and all over the lid, and yelllow staining of the collection cup.

Those are disgusting!!! I love it. Come on, somebody has to have one with black sludge and slime. Also, how often does everyone clean theres? I clean mine once a week, least favorite part of maintenance by far.

Remember - you asked for it.

Picture 1 is the live rock skimmer - cleaned on Wednesday.

Picture 2 is the 1000 g tank skimmer - cleaned on Wednesday I think too.

Picture 3 is the reef system skimmer - cleaned about 10 days ago - it's overdue for another cleaning, as you can see.

Oh you have NO idea... we got a new batch of LR this past Thursday - the 'memory' of that lingers on... I've been apologizing for the unique aroma in the shop since then ;)

My regs will take a whiff of the air and ask, "New rock??!" (all excited!). We keep it in the back but the pong travels througout the store ;)

you know what makes me laugh is those people who say they love the smell of the ocean; you know those calgon bath products that are called 'ocean breeze'....lookin' at these skimmate cups makes me laugh at them and say, "Take a whiff of THIS ocean, baby! If you knew what was in the ocean, you wouldnt want it in your bathtub!"

:doh: :arg:
